    @maleuffy I am looking at a build that would either stack two c-beams or place them back to back, or both, and I am looking at your spreadsheet for aid in calculating the sag. Your spreadsheet is very nicely done and extremely useful by the way.

    So I am wondering how you calculated the moments for the complex shape of the beams? I see that the X axis I for the C-Beam is 1.1774E-07. How is this derived?
    Electrical engineers know little about this gear head stuff;)

    Thanks for your work on this.

    Hello,

    I wish I could help you more on this but the Excel sheet is actually an interpretation of this guide.
