Box im building

Check this out, modeled it in solid works. This is just the frame in isometric view. It looks like its all one solid piece, but itll be built of 2x4's and i dont know how to put parts together in the program yet. but you get the idea! ill put a picture up later with it all finished! rigged a way to chain it down in the bed of my truck!
gotta love CAD programs and EGR



what do you think!?

Have you done force calculations on it? It almost looks like over kill. That thing would probably support over a thousand pounds of direct force. That's just my opinion run a force program on it and it will do all the stress and strain areas when you put the force that will be down on it and you can select a location for it. Most CAD programs have it now days already built in.

yea, i know solid works has it built in, but i havent learned how to use it yet. I have that class tonight so ill ask the prof how to do it. If this one looks like overkill, you shoulda seen the last one haha, it was a little over the top. But ill see if i can slim it down a little. I bet i could lose the whole center cross section and still be ok. thats
almost 12ft less wood id be using

Get arena board and screw it to the top. Arena board is that stuff they have around the sides of hockey rinks. It's the perfect stuff for boxes.

My friend had one of those. I tried to butter it and it made a tear in the space-time continuum.
