This is the first year I am going to attempt to use a online software to create a design and test it there. I am trying to decide wether to use Autodesk Inventor, which my school already has, or try and pay for a couple months subscription to SkyCiv. Been making booms for two years now. Any ideas would be great

If the competition will use SkiCiv, please start to play with it as soon as possible. Treat it as a computer game and try to find out its laws. It does not follow physics laws exactly. Try all kind of possibilities, go extreme.

So I know not many competitions are doing Boomilever but I had a question. I'm sure that this has come up before. I realize this is not the official place for clarifications yadda yadda yadda.

The combined mass of the sand, bucket, testing apparatus must be between 15,100 g and 15,200 g. So if the boom breaks after it has hit 15,000, but before the entire load has been reached, does it get the 5,000 g bonus?

Yes, if the Load Supported is 15,000 g, then by 6.c. the Bonus of 5,000 g is earned. The requirement that the mass of the Loading Assembly and sand in the bucket be 15,100–15,200 g before loading ensures that with some loss of sand, teams can still load up to at least 15,000 g.

That's what I thought, thanks!
