Start with the loads and moments...calculate out and optimise!

What you have is a frame...is it calculated out and optimised, or just sketched? you need to know the loads it is to be subjected to before you allocate a single piece of metal.

Once your happy with the loads, moments and the allowable deflection, then you can start to weld the metal in place...with something like this it is probably best to start from the longest inner sections, then work outwards...what you want to avoid is traps where you cannot insert the length of steel...it can and does happen! Starting from the inside and working out minimises this risk.

Hope this helps...the question is - otherwise - too generic, hence the generic response.

Good luck!
