Kinematic Function-Blocks

Kinematic Function-Blocks (FB): Menus and Toolbars

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

Use Function-Blocks to give and modify motion-values of Motion-Parts (using a Motion-Dimension FB), and Motion-Points (using a Motion-Path FB).

Use Function-Blocks to measure and plot the linear or angular motion of Points and Lines, or 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.
