Six-Bar Kinematic-chains

These are some example six-bar mechanisms. It is easy to model six-bar mechanisms. Add another Dyad to an existing four-bar mechanism.

Concealed Door 180 Mechanism Animation

Concealed Door Hinge

A Six-bar mechanism. Notice the 'Pins in Slot' joints.

This mechanism opens a door by 180º.

There are usually two hinges on each door.

 

Car Hood Hinge Mechanism Linkage Animation

Car Boot or Bonnet (Trunk or Hood in USA)

There is a mechanism at each side of the Boot or Bonnet.

A Six-Bar Mechanism.

The kinematics is 2D.

Garage Door 6-bar Mechanism Animation

Garage Door

In this model, there is a six(6)-bar planar guidance mechanism at each side of the garage door.

It is a Planar Mechanism. The kinematics is 2D.
