Making a completely parametric mobile crane

Throughout July I will be posting a series of videos demonstrating how I went about making this 150T parametric mobile crane.

The crane has:
  • Adjustable materials
  • Adjustable rotation
  • Adjustable extension
  • Adjustable support extensions
  • Adjustable boom angle
  • Adjustable cable drop/automatically stays perpendicular to the ground.
We will look at how we can add jigs, rules to stop the crane overextending/tipping.  I am interesting in any crane experts posting limitations they'd want to impose as I'm going on very limited knowledge of cranes so the values I use may not be correct, but the principles will be the same.
