On the Structual Use of IMCs

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


  • IMCs can be used as a standalone structual unit for machines/buildings (Such as in a HMCU ), or welded/attched together as modules of a larger structure
  • This is a great use case, but special considerations must also be taken to ensure structual integrity of the final design, as well as preventing damage from use in this role

Methods Of Support/Protection

Corrosion Protection


  • Adding some sort of (Sacrificial?) floor will help protect the container itself from wear and allow for bolthing things to the base etc

Load Balancing

Support Collumns

Support Horizontal Beams
