How to model a battery box with concentrated mass

Pioneer

Hi all,

I am looking to model a series of battery box stacking on each other where they are subjected to acceleration in the stacking direction. The boxs are connected with face-to-face contact.

 

However I am not sure how to model the battery box itself. I tried 3D meshing but this makes the box much heavier than the real battery.

 

Is there any common way to model a box shape object?

Thank you very much
Jason

Have you considered midsurfacing the walls of the box?

Actually I have tried this method as well but the wall is fairly weak compare to the battery box which it has a stiffening structure inside.
