This week, progress has slowed due to exams but the previous week saw a lot of progress. I used the Solidworks files to make drafting drawing/schematics of the arch pieces of the bridge. These were then handed to our fabrication crew and they ordered the steel and began cutting the pieces for the arches. I still have to finish the drawings for the chords, legs, and crossbars/hangers but that shouldn’t take me too long. When I attempted to make the final assemble of all the bridge parts I had some trouble with the mating procedure, the dreaded over-defined error, and so I’ll have to wrestle with that next week. Lots of progress made but lots more yet to come. Stay tuned for updates.
