I want a software which I can use to draw mechanisms like this picture:

enter image description here

Update: the author told me that : "the figure was made in Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator by tracing the hand-drawn kinematic diagrams."

This type of request is usually something authors will gladly address. Since this images comes from recent paper (2018), you should write to corresponding authors or journal editor, asking how this image was produced. In fact, providing such information is part of obligation when people publish work, your request will not be unusual at all.

  • I thought it is inappropriate to ask the author about how he drew his pictures. thank yo for your respond I will try to contact with the author. – Abdullah Ahmed Aug 23 at 20:40

    "providing such information is part of obligation when people publish work". Really? – ndpl Aug 23 at 21:18

    @ndpl the idea of publication is to allow people check your work. Tondo that people need to know your methods – aaaaa says reinstate Monica Aug 24 at 0:19
  • But they don't need to know what software you used to make your plots to check your work. The work is in the plots, not in the software used to make them. Just like they don't need to know what software you used to typeset your equations. I've never heard of any obligation to provide that kind of information. – ndpl Aug 24 at 8:47
  • @ndpl Do you expect author to refuse OP? – aaaaa says reinstate Monica Aug 24 at 10:47
