I don’t know why it hadn’t occurred to me before to give this website a bit of well-deserved publicity; especially as I’m often visiting to browse the galleries for inspiration or to collect data to help create 3D models of a container or swap body.
Perhaps it’s because it’s such a great resource I’d assumed everyone already knows about it but if you don’t and you have an interest in:
Then I definitely recommend checking out the galleries on the Intermodal Container Web Page run by Matt Hannes.
I’ve been a bit quiet about my 3D printed models recently; although I’ve made some progress I’ve also run into some problems which have really slowed me down.
So I thought I’d run through some of the steps I went through while finishing the models I’ve discussed in previous posts, some of the problems I experienced while doing that and what I’ll be doing next…
Back in December I showed off some designs for 3D printed tanktainers that I’d planned to have printed by Shapeways. I’ve received the models back and had some time to review them and overall I’m very impressed with the results.
Read on to see pictures of the printed models and to find out what worked and what didn’t…
