1/8 Scale Assembly
More images from the 1/8 scale model….
-The tab connection does not restrict unfolding and requires further bolting to ensure stability.
-A tab connection can reduce overall elements from 1000+/- to 250+/- as connections are incorporated in the panel. This probably doesn’t save money in material cost but drastically reduces assembly time and frustration!!
-Tabs were scaled based on panel edge lengths and therefore varied the size & hole distances.
-The fenestration seems to weaken the panel if it occupies a large percentage and nears the edges.
-Material width was not accounted for and would result in a 9″ increase in the overall full scale length!! This means that all panels must be reduced by 1/8″ to account for the 1/8″ tab fold, or the fold must be set inward.
