Question description

Need to write a summary for a project for truss design. the program that helped with the design is Visual Analysis. It was very detailed, but it let us choose the specific material type ( the exact type of steel), so that helped when rearranging the members and adjusting the diameters. I have attached the project please write a summary like final thoughts on the project, what was achieved or learn etc.. Please let know if you cant see the project in the zip file.
