  The Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) is a third-generation light source. The orbit of the electron beam will be controlled with 48 dipoles, 240 quadrupoles, 168 sextupoles and several correctors in the storage ring. The construction of the first magnets for one sector, including prototype magnets, is to be completed during 2011 December. The mechanical dimensions of these magnets have been examined on a precise 3D-coordinate-measuring machine (CMM). The field strength, effective length and multipole errors were inspected with a rotating-coil measurement system (RCS) and a Hall-probe measurement system (HPS). The field center of the quadrupole and sextupole magnets is shimmed with a precise shimming block on the RCS bench. The inaccuracy of the position of the field center will be within 0.01 mm after shimming the feet. This work reports the current status, the construction performance, the mechanical shimming algorithm and the relative construction issue of the high precision magnet.
