Many thanks. I used to see the steel version known as space frame being used for dedicated one-off canopy/foyer. Interesting for transport application.

Better technology helps. Lighter weight and much stronger structure than current carbon composite structure commonly used.

Hi Everyone,

I am wondering if the above-mentioned is the main reason I had seen and read of some fractures/broken composite frames now and then.

Anyone to share your observations on the life span to be expected with such frame?

Many thanks.
