am working on the following project which is a scissor jack-lift design with a actuator driving the lift of the table.

may i know what kind of simulation or tool should i use, in order to find out the lenght of the actuator extented related to the height of the table. e.g: when table is at the height of 1600 , the lemght between the two leg is 1244.57mm

and i want it to show the lenght between the two leg when i enter certain heigh

Hi unimaggi,
I have designed similar devices.

The easiest way is to set up a mathematical model in Excel.
It is simple trig. so this a much fast method that editing model's in CAD.

ZW also solution solver called Design Optimiser built in that takes dimension from you model (where is the Online Help when you need it?) http://help.zwsoft.com/en/zw3d/articles/article-465.html.

IMO the Excel solution is the pick for this...
Cheers
