Open hopper wall thickness.

Postby Terryn » Mon Jul 20, 2020 1:19 am


I am sure that the open hopper car wall thickness was designed as thin as possible to cut down the weight but is there any easy way to like double the thickness of the wall?

Not really without CAD, but I've invluded the open cargo part here as STEP so you you have a CAD program you can extrude the surfaces on the inside of it to make it thicker. The sides (along the track) would be very simple, just extrude inwards.

Might be so that Meshmixer could do this with the STL, but I'm not a Meshmixer pro. :)
