I came across this site while looking for pre-built arch components and guess what direction My mind went!

The price doesn't seem to be to bad when you consider setup time and cutting all the ribs + materials. :question:

I remember bookmarking this site when I was looking at making my project (I went another direction, split roof) - I'd be interested in what you find out if you go with this solution.
