Help with assembly design


New member
Hello. I've to design a mechanism similar to the one that a dump truck uses. I'm a bit clueless about how to turn my sketch (I've the image) into an assembly. Here is the link to the sketch (SLDPRT) that I've done: https://mega.co.nz/#!3oRj3axB!9bi95ieEnAmpNVBML0Ud2FuapOgRDJCNUorhdVzgBmA . Can anyone help me?

Thank you very much.
I would begin by modeling every part individually and then mating all the features together to form the finished mechanism within an assembly. I'm not aware of any methods where you can create an assembly from a sketch such as the one you have provided.
