Abstract: Abstract Construction of special structures such as space frames and trusses, shells and domes is to provide large spaces with aesthetically pleasing appearance. Such structures are nowadays finding wide applications in our country. This demonstrated that number of clients interested in the space truss technology is increasing by the day. But considering the lack of standards and codes and training for such special structures design and analysis, currently most of such works are done by foreign engineering companies. These special structures are not yet locally manufactured. This study has as the objective to design, analyze and manufacture space truss made of steel, which acts as a network of struts and nodes with emphasis on the nodes. This may serve as a reference for designers and also to identify how and in what way the nodes can be produced by locally available material and manufacturing means. It is hoped that this will make the construction cost for steel space frames lower and the supervision easier due to the use of readily available local manufacturing methods.
