Use
geometric shapes to create interesting packaging solutions.
TABS is a programme available at school that will create a variety
of shapes and draw their NETS. The nets are complete
with the necessary 'tabs' to join 2D surface together to
create fully 3D shapes





















Use 'TABS' for Net  production
Find the
programme in the D&T domain
