The models included provide pieces to create 1/4 inch scale models of common shipping container sizes, specifically 20', 30', and 40' lengths with 8' x 8' cross sections. Pieces are built to snap together into units and can be printed with 2 walls (aka solid), 1 wall, or zero walls depending on the needs of your design.

Hey! This was exactly what I was looking for! But Im having a problem with the doors (two doors, door A and Door B). Im using makerBot (resent version) to export the print file to my Replicator 2 printer. When building the raft, it only builds a raft big enough for door A. When the raft is done and it starts building the doors, it starts with door A, when moving to door B, there is no raft underneath, hence it builds 2mm up in the air.

Why is this happening? And what can I do about it?

Great Idea! Are these standard height or High cube?

Thanks! Standard I'm pretty sure, although to be honest I designed these 4 years ago and can't find the source files... at the time I didn't know the difference :) Have been meaning to redesign these for a while now, using customizer to swap out various options, etc. Let me know if you print them or have ideas!

like the snaps locks!

Thanks! I'm pretty new here, thanks for commenting :)
