Hello. I can help
Does the pipe need to cantilever out 10'?
I submitted the phone call offer
Correct for the phone call
That is a cantilever.
You can plan for a HSS 10x6x3/8
That is the the 10' outrigger arm. HSS is a hollow rectangular steel tube
I would like to limit this to one question. If you want the entire thin designed, including connections and sketches, I can submit an additional service offer for you.
Do you want me to submit the offer or limit this to the outrigger size?
Which components and connections do you need designed
Can you add another post? It looked like the outrigger could be supported as a cantilever off the mast only
What is the mast made of? I can drain the connection to the mast, but you will need to ensure the mast can resist the very large moment resulting from the outrigger load
Thank you. I will submit the offer now.
Please recognize, I can't do anything about the existing structure and can only design the connection to it. You have to verify it can take the load
Yes, it's in addition. The load will be the 6,300 pounds you specified, increased by a lifting dynamic factor of 33%
I can't possibly do that without knowing what it is or how's it's supported
