|The following was taken from www.collectorsweekly.com : Prior to our disposable metal, paper and plastic oil containers you would purchase oil at a gas station either pumped from a drum or in glass quart bottles which sat in special racks.|
|Second Test Rendering|
|I think this will work – unless Craig has some thoughts on changes. I’ll just go with this for now. With the pattern satisfactory .. I saved the file ‘as is’.|
|I found a good photo of the wire rack on eBay. The problem I have is .. this is outside my ability .. not something that 3D printing would work very well if at all.|
|The closest that I can find are the 1:24 milk crates from Wildhare Models. I have no idea really what size or how many milk bottles these are supposed to hold.|
|Solid Carrier – 1:24 Concept|
|Here’s the 1:24 version. The .3mm walls are much closer to scale now .. they would be about 9/32″ thick full size. That’s the dividers actually. I made the exterior walls thicker at .4mm .. which would be about 3/8″.|
I created a mesh with 8ea racks and 64ea bottles to completely fill them. I placed an order so now I’ll wait to see how they come out. If they are good then I may order more – I need to start building stock up for MicroMimesis – that way I can sell individual sets to people.
I’ll leave this up in my Shapeways store until/if I am able to sell individual sets as needed.
