.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.

I suppose scaling for different calibers of ammo would be fairly easy, yes?
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.
Sweet.  I've scaled for 9mm.  Printer is warming up now... I'll post my results.  :)

If it works well, I'll scale for .40 and .38, too.
 If you scale to other calibers successfully please post a derivative, or at least the scale values here.
I could make them for other calibers but I have no way of testing the fit.
I look forward to seeing your results! :)
