    Shaft loads static or fatigue calculation ?

    Hello vysang and welcome to the forum,

    if the shaft rotates it is subject to fatigue loads even if the load appears static...unless it is

    Scissor Jack Force Calculation

    I think the FEA simulation is not necessary.

    It is suffice a white paper sheet, a pen and the levers theory

    Scissor Jack Force Calculation

    A Numerical simulation (FEA) will do it quickly and repeatedly with enduring accuracy during the design phase.

    If you read the original posters comment, he mentions that he is 'building a prototype' - a prototype is a working physical model.... He only later mentions

    Force calculation

    You can just use individual component and do a Free Body Diagram to solve for the shear force by the cutter. Disregard the momentum side as I don't think

    You will not usually get good results with increasing image size, it will get pixelated and blurry. You could try tracing the line illustrations with

    Surely it is not illegal to build models of weapons. Or would it also be illegal to draw a weapon then? Anyway good models, however what are you trying
