A scale of 1:25 was chosen for the physical model. All supporting elements of the structure were made of brass, the support structure - from wood and plywood base, the ties - from thin metal wire. In the first stage of preparation for the production, a 3D model was created, which included all the parts for production to scale. Further, drawings were prepared for production and material was purchased. In order to cut arches on a laser machine, drawings of arches with grooves for corners and holes for tie attachment were created.
For the purlins, we used ready-made brass angle profiles of 2 x 2 mm. For smaller parts such as secondary beams, 2 mm wire was used.
For the ties, a fishing line with a diameter of less than 1 mm was used.
