Mathematics of flat-pack box design and assembly

Last Modified: 2015-08-03
Does anyone know if there a name for the subject of flat-pack box design, and what is/are the corresponding mathematical methods applied for modelling the assembly from 2D (flat) to 3D (assembled)? Presumably these are used in box design processes.

Background: I'm trying to design a certain type of box, and slowly coming to the conclusion that I may need a more analytical approach.

Thanks for your input!
