.45 Caliber Stackable Ammo Box by christinachun Nov 12, 2012

Description

I was asked to make an ammo box to store .45 Caliber ammo. Perfect for storing unused ammo safely within a gun safe and it stacks nicely since I added negative space for the bullet rims to fit snuggly.

weird thing is I imported it into sketch up, exported it as STL and it worked fine, not sure what happen
Interesting. I don't use slic3r, so I can't confirm.
Is it me or is the STL scaled down really low?

Instructions

I printed the ammo box on my Afinia H-Series 3d Printer (UP! 3d Printer). Printed flat. You will want to print this model in a way so that the bottom will be clean, flat and perfect for stacking.

<p>I suppose scaling for different calibers of ammo would be fairly easy, yes?</p>

<p>Should be simple enough! The current size is of each square slot is 12mm which just fits the .45 caliber. The depth of each square slot is 22mm.</p>

<p>Sweet.  I've scaled for 9mm.  Printer is warming up now... I'll post my results.  :)</p>

<p>If it works well, I'll scale for .40 and .38, too.</p>

<p> If you scale to other calibers successfully please post a derivative, or at least the scale values here.</p>

<p>I could make them for other calibers but I have no way of testing the fit.</p>

<p>I look forward to seeing your results! :)</p>
