Construction of the Cubic of Stationary Curvature for a Four-bar Linkage
This video shows the construction of the cubic of stationary curvature. The intersection of the cubic of stationary curvature with the inflection circle, iw Ball’s point which is a coupler point that traces a locally straight line trajectory.
This video also shows how to vary the coupler point and the dimensions of the reference polygon for the four-bar linkage to vary the shape of the coupler curve.
