San Diego Library Dome Project Featured in MSC

SME Steel Contractor's San Diego Library Dome project — the grand prize winner in the Commercial category of the 2012 SDS/2 Solid Steel Competition — is featured in the November 2012 issue of Modern Steel Construction.

SME detailed the dome entirely in SDS/2, creating hundreds of rolling diagrams with varying radii, thousands of difficult pipe wraps, and complex, frame-based shop drawings. SME hand modeled each member, gusset, and connection, while each architectural clevis, swage fork and other hardware was modeled to the manufacturer's exact specifications to meet tight tolerances.
