This version of Mechanism Generator provides a five-position synthesis feature that generates planar six-bar design candidates. The designer specifies five task positions of a 3R open chain in a SolidWorks sketch that is part of your existing model. MechGen 3.0 reads the sketch and designs a set of six-bar linkages that achieve your goal. A previewer allows you to see the operation of the various linkages. Select the linkage you like and have MechGen create a SolidWorks assembly that you can import directly into your model.
This version includes Browser Mode that allows solutions from the Generator mode to be saved for later use.
