Recommended Posts

Anybody come across one of these? I'm interested in shipping container architecture and would like to use a decent container component to start out. Thanks.

I have a "decent" 42' adaptable 3d shipping container. In which way can I give you this block?

 

Can you post the 3d block of that shipping container here? thanks :wink:

Who knew shipping containers were so popular? I'll take two. One in red and one in gunmetal blue. Thanks.

 

Wait...I need one in higly polished stainless-steel too.

 

If you post a dwg file save it to a 2000 file format. That way it will be of use to most everyone here. Thanks for sharing.

I don't think I've ever seen a "40' high shipping container". Can someone post a pic of one of these things?

Yikes! Missed that one important detail. I guess that container doesn't get very far before it gets hung up on wires, a bridge or tree limbs. LOL

I think the confusion is exactly what the HIGH is referring to. I read that as a shipping container that has a height dimension of 40' (I think JD Mather did too). Looking at a table on one of the links that Skipso posted, I'm still confused as the height dimensions of the 40' (regular) and the 40' high are both 8'.

 

So just to satisfy my curiosity and add to the wealth of useless knowledge that resides in my brain - can anyone who works with these things explain why a

 

40' shipping container is 40' x 8' high x 8'6" wide: http://www.csshippingcontainers.co.uk/containerspecifications.html#40shipping

 

and a 40' high shipping container is 40' x 8' high x 9'6" wide: http://www.csshippingcontainers.co.uk/containerspecifications.html#40highcube

I've never drawn a shipping container but, have used many.

 

I frequently ship overseas in containers, worldwide.

Or, if the tank(s) is too big for a container, mount to a flat rack.

 

Here's the best I can do, a *.pdf file of container sizes. :wink:

Looks like conflicting sizes on the heights and widths. At this point I'm more likely to believe your PDF Tankman, I can't imagine that different width containers would be helpful when loading these puppies onto a cargo ship.

 

Thanks for the clarification.

I did find some 2D *.dwg files for overseas containers.

The files present various views; i.e.: top, bottom, side, ends.

 

There are a number of add'l drawings in the ZIP file, too big a file to post all of it. :wink:

 

Adjust size as required. Hope this gets you out of the gate.

I posted most by breaking the file down.

Sorry but, all 2D. Have fun and, welcome to the forums! 8)

 

Just curious, where are you posting from?
