How do you make a VEX scissor lift?
A scissor lift can be activated by using a spur gear on a motor and the Rack Gear with the Linear Motion Kit to pull one side of the scissors, sliding it towards the pivot side.
How does a 4 bar lift work?
A four- bar linkage, also called a four- bar, is the simplest movable closed-chain linkage. It consists of four bodies, called bars or links, connected in a loop by four joints. Generally, the joints are configured so the links move in parallel planes, and the assembly is called a planar four- bar linkage.
How does a double reverse 4 bar work?
The double reverse 4 – bar arm requires the most planning and time to assemble. Providing as many cross supports as possible between the pair of arms will help keep the arms stable. Many double reverse 4 – bar designs mount the lift motor(s) with a 12T gear to the second tower and drive the 84T gears on the lift.
