Your box can be set in stone in as little as 5 lines

So I'm about 90 boxes in, trying to understand everything, and made a set of slides to show how adding each segment adds bits of information to your box. Turns out, a box can be established in as little as 5 lines. Filling in the rest is like figuring out whodunit in the game of Clue.

Great analysis! And your comparison to solving it like a game of clue is spot on.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
