A Forgeworld inspired shipping container to be used as terrain for games of Warhammer 40K.

Designed with playablity in mind. It's 3 inches tall so climbing up it's side ladder would count as 1 floor. It can be closed or doorless to allow units to pass through with line of sight blocking, interior floor and walls have detail as well on the "no_doors" version. Separate door file included should you want to decide after printing. Nubs on the top line up with notches on the bottom for easy stacking and interlocking.

Modeled to be printer friendly. Has no serious overhangs and roof bridges well. Print bottom down, no supports needed.

*Can also be used as a replacement for GW's Munitorium Armored Container Cache which is looks less cool than the Forgeworld one.

This printed perfectly, fantastic work. Saved me hours of 3d work =) Going to print a few more and paint em up.

Thanks for sharing!

is it possible to get you to cut it in half. horizontal ?

What infill percentage are you printing this with?
Does the open version bridge well?
I have the closed version printing now, 100 micron layers with 20% infill and it seems to be proceeding fine. I would like to print the open version as well, but I'm a bit wary of finding out whether the top will bridge with no support after 41 hours.

I've printed them at 3-5% infill and 3 shells on a makerbot. Becasuse of the support collumn on the inside, the actual bridge is about 1.5 inches

So the underside of the top of the container probably has a fair amount of webbing then.
I might want to split the open model, flip it vertical, and then glue the pieces together.

For the closed one I'll try dropping the infill percentage a bit then as well.

Thanks! This is a fun model.

Awesome! Post photos when you're done :)

great job! nice variation and fantastic weathering detail on that paintup. I had this on my bucket list to recreate; now I can check it off and work on something different. ;)

Thanks! That means a lot because your stuff has been an inspiration to me. I'm working on my take of zone mortalis pieces next (your door got me thinking).

This is super bad ass, Paint looks hot.
