    What is the structure used for? What will be the loading of the center beam?

    The size of a gusset is a balance between a less effective trapezoid and a heavier triangle.

    You are building a gantry crane to lift and move 1000kg loads, and you are asking for design advice on an Internet forum?

    This thread is closed. You can sent me a personal message with details of your Mechanical Engineering education and experience, and I will consider re-opening the thread.
