This page shows the completion of the HF calorimeter module. The upper cradle is lowered to the lower cradle and bolted.

The great thing about solid modelling is that the designer can create views of phases of assembly to test ideas. I created this shot to see what the top cradle looks like as it mates with the lower assembly. From this view it is apparent that the lowest narrow green plate inside the top cradle needs to miss the wedge of concrete sticking up from the lower assembly. This plate and the outer cover plate may cause a tolerance miss-match between the upper and lower assemblies. I conclude from this picture that that lowest narrow green plate may not be necessary at all and could conceivably be eliminated. Its neighbor is there to support the upper concrete and stiffen the steel frame. Its only function would be to stiffen the frame because no concrete is attached to it. FEA should determine if this plate is needed at all.
