A couple quick additional thoughts/things to consider.Hi,
My first time to Boomilever. I have 3 questions.
1. I was going thru the scoring sheet and 6d in the sheet says "Clearance from Contact Depth Line (in cm to the closest 0.1cm)" what is this and how is this measured?
2. If I plan to have 2 holes in my base, how apart should they be? Any idea?
3. When I see the pictures of different boomilevers, I see different kinds of loading blocks. So Am I expected to go with my own loading blocks or the respective contests will have the loading blocks in the size of 5x5x2?
I think your question is can pieces/part of the compression member be below the plane of the contact depth line - so long as contact with the wall is above that line. Yes, it is a "contact" line- it constrains how far down you can contact, not how far down, out away from the wall, parts of the structure can extend.- applies to both C- and B-So are you allowed in division C to build lower than 15cm from the base connection? As long as you only contact the wall <15cm from the base. Because for fun I want to try and build a triangular or elliptical compression member. If not clear I can try and draw a picture.
