Hello,
I want to draw mechanisms and some dynamics diagrams as shown in the pictures attached but have no idea. I have Visio but there doesn't seem to be a Mechanics toolbar.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

PF has another earlier thread on this:

Some people there recommend using asymptote:

I use Inkscape a lot.

It's very well suited for mathemical and technical drawing thanks to its "magnet" feature that allows you to connect and align all the shapes perfectly.
However, it's not physics-oriented, but since it's a vector graphics software, you can get very smooth and clear results.

You'll just have to draw everything from scratch.
