What are you going to make the 1000s of sandbags from? :D ;)

The current thinking is that as you only see the tops and front side of the stack of sacks then in a similar way to making cobble stones. Linka or Muliput putty, a press of rectangular brass tube and loooots of patience.  ;)
Tedious but rewarding. :thumbsup:

Having looked at this again and with the number and varied sandbagged structures that need to be ‘protected’ then maybe a rethink.  ???

For example this: which states 100,00 sandbags!



Q. Is a sandbag wall something that could be 3D printed? Not an individual sand bag but a complete section of fronts, sides and tops to suit each location.

Maybe I will pop to the 3D Modelling Board and start a topic to ask the question and it will be a valid reason for me to explore 3D printing.
