what kind simulation or tool shouhld i use for this problem

Recommended Posts

i am working on the following project which is a scissor jack-lift design with a actuator driving the lift of the table.

may i know what kind of simulation or tool should i use, in order to find out the lenght of the actuator extented related to the height of the table. e.g: when table is at the height of 1600 , the lemght between the two leg is 1244.57mm

and i want it to show the lenght between the two leg when i enter certain height

Autodesk inventor does that also - but you could probably knock up an excel spreadsheet - which would be impressive :)

Or on the cardboard mockup draw two scales on the legs and they will show you :)

if, on the other hand you want an animated version and have a few days to draw it up then go for solidworks or inventor - but I would ask why!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
