This file contains a scissor lift model with hydraulic actuation built using Simscape Multibody and Simscape Fluids. The scissor lift model is assembled from a library of parameterized component models. Intermediate models are included to show you the steps of modeling this system. A MATLAB UI is also included that allows you to interactively change the dimensions of the scissor lift.
