I didn't like that chart, Mine called out the web rods separately.

Can you get square rod (barstock) ? Would save that flattening op.
If you don't flatten all to the same dim, the flange angles weave in/out funny.

I can see it now:
bar joist manufacturing at DuckDuckGo

I think a quick jig for the shop press should get the bends repeatable and pretty quick. Even just flattening down around the same bolt would get you pretty close, I think.
