Shipping Container Drawings

(NOTE: My Website hosting service recently migrated to new servers and since then I've been informed some people can't download the files below. I've reloaded them and also added zip files will all the drawings. If you can't download the files or zip file, contact me at admin@arktist.com and I will email the desired zip file to you.)

This page presents a set of reverse engineered drawings of a 'typical' 40 foot, HiCap (9 foot high) shipping container. I prepared these drawing in February 2008 using measurements taken from my shipping container. The only represent drawings of a 'typical' shipping container because there are small variations in the implementation of shipping container from various manufacturer's or times. None-the-less, these drawings are close enough for use in design projects.

 

The drawings are presented as .jpg images for viewing and as .CAD  and .dwg drawings. Drawings in .CAD format can be viewed or edited using AutoDesk's QuickCAD program, which is quite economical to purchase. The .dwg format can be read by numerous programs including AutoCAD.

 

While I have done my best to accurately reverse engineer the shipping container design, I make no assertion as to the accuracy or completeness of the drawings.
