Practical use of paper models

why needs paper nets
Quite often, a question about the practical use of paper models pops up. What is the point of paper modeling?

 

And really, why? We live in the age of modern technologies when we have everything on the screens, and it is enough to one touch to manage sophisticated technology. However, it has been impossible to eliminate “paper technology” so far. On the contrary, it has become essential in the modern world. Packaging materials are one of the spheres dominated by paper. We see paper models so often that just stopped noticing them.

In this article, we will examine what a package for a regular light bulb looks like.  So, we bought two bulbs made by different manufacturers in a regular store.

Disassemble the first packing box:

Next, we gently separate the glued part.

So we see a model of the package as a whole sheet of paper.

The same steps we do with another box.

5.net for light bulb packaging

The result is the same. The second paper model is slightly different from the first one as it contains two extra details used to fix a bulb inside.

Thus, we can see that both manufactures made a box model from a whole sheet of cardboard to produce a package. This is just one example of how a folded cardboard sheet is used in everyday life.
Paper models are a powerful tool both for modeling and for the modern industry.
