Looking at this Ipad Pro box I have learned many different things about packaging. First off, in order to have a secure package that is carrying something fragile you need to have multiple different layers on the outside to make it thick so that it does not break the product in the inside. I also learned most boxes have a much larger volume than what is needed meaning it is much more expensive and worse for the environment. I have researched also a lot about interesting shapes and irregular shapes to use for my final package. I have learned lots about what I need for my final product. This will all help me with my final project for many reasons. First off, this was a good practice on how to make a box. I know we will probably be practicing a lot before our final but that is most likely just planning and drawing nets. This was more hands-on and practical. Secondly, by dissecting this box it helped me to understand what is needed to make a strong box that can stand on its own. It also helped me to understand sizing and some of the measurements I will need. Geometry can help us reduce our carbon footprint by a lot. If we understand volume, surface area and more to do with geometry we can have better knowledge of the real amount of packaging we need and will not waste as much. It will help us to understand that we only need certain amounts of stuff and we will not have as much extra to through in the landfill. It can also help us reduce the amount of pollution in the air because factories that make these packages will not have to burn as much energy.
