File Information

This file contains a scissor lift model built using Simscape Multibody and Simscape. The scissor lift model is assembled from a set of parameterized component models, which are included in a separate library. A number of intermediate models are also included to show you the incremental steps of modeling this system. A MATLAB GUI is also included that allows you to interactively change the dimensions of the scissor lift.
Please read the README.txt file to get started.

Steve, why you use 10 for link density in the param file?
