Chassis geometric equations

  1. Aug 2, 2014 #1

    I'm trying to calculate the position of the points from a struture like the picture attached. This is a mechanic structure that consist on 3 triangles (blue, orange and green), i know all the triangles sides lengths and also their angles (and some more colored in green). My objective is to find the spacial position (x, y coordinates) of any the points of the structure.

    I tried to solve it using sinus and cosinus methods, but i can't find the solution because i always crash with the M distance because it is unknown. I tried another methods but without success...

    Any suggestion or method to try???

    Hi again, i also tried thinking like circumferences, and finding their crossing points.
