Kinematic Function-Blocks

Kinematic Function-Blocks (FB)

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

Connect Function-Blocks with wires. Motion-values flow instantly through the wires and the Function-Blocks that you connect together.

Use Function-Blocks to plan and control the motion of kinematic-chains, to measure and plot linear or angular motion over a machine-cycle and also to calculate and export Cam-Coordinates.
