There are a total of 104 pieces with this shape, all being unique and different from each other.

Erection of first lower portals during next hours.

Is the portal in three or four pieces with the arch segment as a single piece and the rafter as two or three depending on length?

Correct. The transition segment links rafter with portal and includes an arch segment that will eventually form the fixed arches spanning the whole length of the oculus.

Are there temporary lifting lugs on these pieces?

I am trying to figure how these will be rigged and lifted into place.

Going out on a limb and saying that the orange piece they are moving around is involved in that operation

i think ive figured it out.

the orange beam bolts into the top flange of the portal piece. The orange beam is sized properly to allow the hook and load line to be on COG of the portal frame. So it can hoist it in the correct orientation while allowing the portal piece to nest underneath the street level steel.

good idea.

I had some free time today, so I decided to try and find new webcams showing us the site.

First of all, I did not find anything really new or exciting. However, I did manage to find another KPI webcam. Well, actually, it's the 7WTC cam, but with much more frequent updates. Currently, we consider ourselves lucky if that cam updates twice a day. The one I found updates every 15 minutes (more or less) between 6am and 7pm (more or less).

The problem is that since KPI keeps all images on their server, every image has a unique URL, so no direct link like earthcam. That means I had to make a little script on my NAS to redirect to the latest image available. The resolution is a bit smaller than the KPI webcam, but at least you have more frequent update.

So, the redirection can be found here :

http://beber.synology.me/kpi.php

Since the script runs on my NAS that is just a few feet away from me, I'd be happy if you wouldn't call this page 300 billions times per second. If anyone has a decent server and want to make the redirection, you can PM me.

Great work, I thought it used to update that often when it was still controlled by The Rising deal. after the tenth anniversary the KPI cams were put on a new server and the ESB view hasn't updated since a few months after then. I'm pretty sure the first year or so of images for the 7WTC cam were deleted also. This will be very useful, and you couldn't have done it at a better time.

I might use another M-series favco cap for both my cranes if I can't find detailed cabin pictures. The power-pack and cab will be uploaded as components to stay under the 10mb limit.
On topic: looks like four new welding generators or other similar sized yellow units have been placed on the ledge of the oculus, two per side. There doesn't appear to be progress elsewhere.

Looking at those sections on the site, they seems to be quite large. Then looking at that drawing up there, these are actually one of the smallest in the structure! How the hell are they going to deliver those large parts? This will be interesting.

It would be great to watch from home on a LIVE cam. To bad they don't have one running down there focused on the hub 24/7/365. Oh well we just have to do the best that we can.

We have reports that somes pieces "will range in size, reaching up to 27 feet-wide, 120 feet-long, and weighing up to 50 tons". We discussed the issue of moving them to the site around this post. But now that we saw what kind of trailer they used for 1WTC masts, that could give us an idea. But as you said, this will be intersting.

Of the largest sections (rafters) half of the total length will be hanging off the truck platform.

That's insane. When should those be transported to the site?
