Abstract

Mathematical models that have been employed to synthesize spatial mechanisms for rigid body guidance have been found to be too complicated to implement in practical applications, especially for four-position guidance synthesis. This paper describes simple analytical methods for synthesizing single degree-of-freedom spatial mechanisms having two independent loops for four precision positions. In addition, prescribed timing has been simultaneously considered for several spatial mechanisms.
