How to Measure a Box

How to measure a box

All three boxes contain the same measurements: 12″, 9″, and 5″. How you define them, i.e. length, width or depth, can make all the difference in the world.

Drawings show finished boxes. Measurements are for INSIDE dimensions of box. Length is always longer than the width (unless length and width are the same). Measurements should be given by LENGTH first, then WIDTH and last DEPTH (or height of box).

If your measurements are not given in the proper order, you will end up with a box you cannot use! Please measure carefully.

How You Measure a CIRCUIT BOARD is DIFFERENT than How You Measure a BOX.
Please remember . . . HOW you measure makes a difference!
