    How well does your printer "bridge" a 1/4" gap??? I'm going to try I beam style for the bents. It may be the weekend before I get much work done drawing it up.
    Do you have the bridges already???

    I can build something supported if need be but I think I'll be OK with just 1/4 inch. Does the tops of the containers unsupported at .56".

    Yea I got the bridges BEFORE i found out about 3D printing.

    The actual size of the Holt 75 as per a museum ( San Joaquin County Historical Society and Museum) who were kind enough to send me the measurements is width of the Holt 75 is 8 feet, the length is 20 feet, and the height with the canopy is 10 feet.

    That means in N it should be 1.5 inches long. Mine is 1.26 so I'm guessing the dimensions of the 1-100th one is off a tad. I'm going to run over to the other side of MN tomorrow and see if I can get a peak at the UP 4014 Bigboy on it's way to Duluth. So I'll give printing it another try this weekend.

    Don't know how your printer is configured, so 20+ hours

    I've been wanting to save up for a Photon, or similar quality resin based 3D printer for some time. I know software often will have an option to do auto supports. I don't know if the software would allow such a thing, but if you can replace the default support with a model that can scale infinitely in the Z axis (either manually, or by replacing the source model for what the default auto support uses), then theoretically, you could replace the supports with useful elements... I-beams, angle beams, etc.

    Like I said, no idea if the source model that is built in to the software for auto supports can even be replaced, but you could always manually add supports of a useful variety, I would imagine. It's just a thought. A way to potentially reuse what would otherwise be waste resin.

    Regarding shipping containers, rather than form them as whole boxes, why not form them as stacks of vertical wall segments. You can copy and paste the same segments over and over to absolutely max out the build volume of the printer. For those using a resin printer, the time per layer is identical whether creating a massive flat area over the whole bed, or just a single dot of resin. It'd make resin based container printing far more time efficient.

    You wouldn't be interested in selling a couple copies, would you?

    Paul, let me get it figured out as per size and then yea, I'll send you a couple. I'm trying to get the actual measurements of a real one so I can get it as close as possible.
