What does steel rectangular tubing have to do with math?In this video, you will need to determine the total amount of tubing (assume the top of the riser will be added later) needed to produce a riser that will be used in a robotic welding enclosure at KI in Green Bay. You will be challenged to understand a two-dimensional figure (blueprint) that represents a three-dimensional object. You will also look at the loss of material from cutting.
