VERY good work man! Throw those up on GrabCAD! Sure youll get some love there and Im sure many would love to use those models in their own custom built systainer storage solutions.

Ryan clearly spent many hours crafting these things.
Why would he want to give that away?
What are you offering to compensate for his time?

free SolidWorks  license access:
I'm curious if anyone has taken advantage of the free SolidWorks Make (non-commercial)license through EAA as I posted earlier in this thread?
How did it work out? - any difficulties ?

Impressive models! Great work!

How do you perform the measurements in practice? It must be hard to make sure everything is lined up at the correct place?

I have a digital micrometer for the finer measurements, an angle finder, and some longer rulers. It's not perfect, but good enough to look true. I'm CNC'ing some inserts soon, so I'll know for sure if my measurements were any good. :)

So what happened OP? Are you going to make these available for us to use or was this just a teaser showing off your mad skillz? I have been wanting to layout my plans for my own SysPort and I would love to be able to use these models in it to help get the model and dimensions looking good. Did you upload the files anywhere public or would you be willing to email them or send them some other way?
