    Default Massive help with piston project (challenge)

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    here is the problem that im supposed to draw

    in the picture in the attachment, the mechanism for a front end loader is shown in fiqure p 15.9. the specifications call for the boom to elevate through 74 degree from the position shown. Find the piston travel required for the boom cylinder X to the produce this elevation. at the upper position the bottom of the bucker is to slope downward at 50 degrees to dump the contents. what piston travel is required for the bucket cylinder Y to accomplish this operation? use a scale of 1:10

    you will find the picture in this page

    I think your project is better suited for Inventor rather than AutoCAD.

    probably but easiest way is to ask somebody else to do it for you!

    Note to OP - not aimed at you but we do get a lot on here making little if any attempt to do any of it themselves.
