This picture shows a comparison of two variants of Simplified Shamrock Box: Simplified Shamrock Box (on the left) Slightly Simplified Shamrock Box (on the right).
The “slightly simplified” version uses a 16×16 grid (8×8 of which is taken by the molecule) while the “fully simplified” version used a 12×12 grid. This makes the “fully simplified” version more paper-effective and causes it to produce a larger box when folded from a sheet of same size as the “slightly simplified” version.
A consequence of more effective paper usage in “fully simplified” variant is that the locks are on the outside of the walls and are visible as a distinct pattern on two of them while the “slightly simplified” variant has completely smooth walls.
