Been busy helping print some of these designs with @samusi01 . Currently testing his latest offering of a stowed E-CHU unit on a M1075A1.

Thanks again for all of your help.

Some folks have already noticed that I have corrected an error from last month - I posted over at Thingiverse some quadcons, but forgot to hit 'publish'. That error has been corrected, allowing one to print up a batch of quadcons and model loads like these ones:



From here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/24587420@N02/albums/72157707805643885 where one can find other examples of quadcons.

Anyway, Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6106597

These are set up like the earlier tricons, with a basic (end) one and an intermediate one that has spacing pads included to get the correct spacing between individual quadcons. In the image below, note that spacing is off as I just dropped them in and didn't bother to glue them together to achieve the correct spacing.

Back in July I noted that the multi temperature refrigerated container system and M3 CROP were in the pipeline. Both are now available at

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6028177

along with the rest of the PLS loads.

Here's an unpainted sample of both. Note that there are multiple versions of the MTRCS; if used as a palletized load, the correct thing to do would be to select the version with the rollers on the rear and if using it as a container, select the version with the rollers on the front. Reality is that there are images of the MTRCS loaded onto flats as containers with the rollers still installed on the rear... so whatever.

Recently uploaded the last version of HEMTT I plan on doing, the most aquatic of the family, the M1977. Three main versions are up at:

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6209863

Over the next few days, I will be updating earlier models to bring them up to date with recent changes I've made. Hopefully there will be no more major revisions to anything, and I don't have a lot in the design and work stage at this moment. I do plan on type specific loads for the 1977s eventually.
