Time to show me if Instructables lives up to its name
My issue is that I'm working with very tight dimensional restrictions. The 2nd picture shows the dimensions of the top and bottom face sheets. The drinking straws are 3mm in diameter. The edges of the "pyramids" must form an angle of 30, 45 or 60 degrees with the horizontal plane.
The current method I'm using to make these trusses takes about 5 - 6 hours. I need something that could take less than an hour. Also, the straws are glued to the face sheets with a small glue gun, but this leaves a lot of "glue residue" around the straws. If you have any better ideas....
what say you?!!
edit: I forgot to mention that money is not really much of an issue, so if you suggest I need some equipment or something of the sort that would be rather expensive, I will seriosuly consider it!
