Large Workshop Structure
Concept - Structural Space Frames
Build and Data Collection
Logistics: 1 day weld, 6 welders, cutting happens prior to weld. 1 day assemble. Joints are required. Connector system must be created for this system if build is to be rapid. Choices include u-bolts and plates.

- Large Covered Structure - initial hoop idea but flat hoops are not stable. Lesson: need to create stiff truss structures - triangular or square - to make the construction method robust.
- CNC Sawmill - also uses rebar trusses
