Kinematic Function-Blocks

Kinematic Function-Blocks (FB)

Kinematic Function-Blocks are the 'brains' of kinematic-chains.

Use Function-Blocks to plan the motion-values of Motion-Parts (with a Motion-Dimension FB), and Motion-Points (with a Motion-Path FB).

Use Function-Blocks to measure linear and angular motions of Points and Lines, and the relative motion between different Points and Lines.

Use Function-Blocks to calculate and export Cam-Coordinates

Connect Function-Blocks with wires. The motion-values flow instantly through all Function-Blocks that you connect together.
