Preassembling the First Half of the Truss

10 forks are currently placed onto the assembly jig along with 6 straight timbers. With all of the pieces temporarily held into their final positions using straps we are beginning the process of bolting together. In assembling, small errors that have accumulated throughout the process from scanning to milling become evident. As well as developing strategies to correct specific instances we have been able to feed back information to the milling of the forks for the second half of the truss which we hope will smooth its assembly.
