1. A build material volume transportation device, comprising:
a shuttle to transport a build material volume, the shuttle having an opening therethrough to receive the build material volume;
a build tray to raise the build volume into the opening in the shuttle; and
a latch assembly to releasably secure the build tray to the shuttle, the latch assembly comprising:
a piston to extend a tip from the shuttle towards an aperture in the build tray; and
the tip to interface with the aperture to secure the build tray to the shuttle, wherein the tip rotates independently of the piston.
