Mechanism Synthesis

Mechanism Synthesis Techniques and Mechanism Design and Analysis

We usually use MechDesigner to design and analyze cams, motions, mechanisms, and multi-axis machines.

However, it is also possible to use the Constraint-Based Sketch-Editor in MechDesigner for Mechanism Synthesis

Thus, we have prepared these topics to explain the classic mechanism synthesis techniques.


Notes:

Mechanism Synthesis is also called Kinematic Synthesis, or Linkage Synthesis.

In this section, we use the term Mechanism to replace the term kinematic-chain.


To complete these tutorials you should be able to:

Use the Part-Editor to add and delete sketch-elements, dimensions and constraints to sketch-elements

Assemble basic kinematic-chains

Use the Measurement FB
