Anyway, I just wanted to give a long overdue update on that platform (assuming it's actually interesting). The new platform has been finished for almost 6 months now and I've had a bunch of pictures of it's construction on my desktop at work and I figured I should share them. Pictures:
|This drawings shows my overall design for the platform. Notice how there have been some significant changes over the original design pictures I posted earlier.|
|The first of the new steel columns to be put in.|
|Oh noes! It's a platform 50 feet off the ground and it's got no handrails! XD I had to use a harness whenever I went out there.|
|The old platform.|
|The new stairway.|
|The new platform, almost complete (still lacking handrails).|
|This is a new girder truss I designed that spans almost 40 feet. I had to carefully design it to both support the load of the platform and allow that pipe to travel through it.|
|The top of the new platform. Still needs some grating on the far end.|
|More of the new platform.|
|Closeup of the end of the truss.|
|Closeup of the grating.|
|The last section to need grating.|
|Showing the connection of the lateral bracing and the top of the new truss.|
|I got that pipe perfectly positioned using nothing but a tape measure, go me!|
In other news, I'm super busy. Well, that isn't news I suppose, that's been the case for the past 7 months it seems. However, I'm now even more busy than that. I'm trying really hard to get this all done ASAP so I can get Harrison's Mind - Episode 3 done. I really, really want to finish that episode so much. Thank you everyone for waiting patiently.
P.S. Also, I haven't forgotten about that webcomic I started. I've had half of the first comic done for weeks now but vowed not to work on it until I finish Episode 3.
P.P.S. If any of you are wondering CyhAnide has told me that, yes, it's likely she will do a mind series of Portal 2. However, she obviously still has to finish Portal 1 so, please, don't bug her about either one.
