Our Mechanism Generator 3.0 software reads a SolidWorks sketch of a planar 3R chain that reaches five task positions and computes a set of Watt 1 six-bar linkages that approximate movement through the task positions within specified tolerances. An animation previewer shows how each linkage moves. Select one and MechGen 3 generates a solid model of the linkage.
This is more excellent work from the team of Alex Arredondo and Kastubh Sonawale.
**Update: This video has been revised to provide a preview at the beginning that shows the six-bar linkage that is designed using MechGen 3.
