if its only printing one wall then the other 3 walls are thinner than your extrusion width settings. the box may not have perfect thickness walls. if you want to see if your actual extrusion matches your extrusion width setting then check the box "merge all outlines into a solid model. set the perimeters to 1, top and bottom to 0.

I found the merge all outlines setting, where is the perimeter settings? I'm pretty new to this.

The easiest way is to use a solid cube model and just print without top or bottom layers and one perimeter.

Your better off using a feeler gauge though over a piece of paper though. (I think a .005 gauge is about right)
