Resources for Mechanism Analysis and Synthesis by mloew
Posted: 21 Oct 03 (Edited 6 Sep 05)

Software with Mechanism Functionality:
  • Pro/ENGINEER Mechanism Dynamics. See also the PTC: Pro/ENGINEER Forum (forum554)
  • LMS Virtual.Lab Motion. See also the LMS International forum (forum829)
  • MSC.ADAMS. See also the MSC.Software: ADAMS forum (forum823)
  • FreeCAD
  • Working Model
  • MSC.visualNastran 4D
  • Saltire Analytix
  • WATT Mechanism Synthesis by Heron Technologies
  • SAM (Synthesis and Analysis of Mechanisms by ARTAS-Engineering Software

  • Mechanism Analysis and Synthesis resources:
  • Four-Bar Linkage Analysis and Synthesis (on-line calculator)
  • Four-bar linkage kinematic analysis (on-line calculator)
  • Position analysis of four-bar linkage using complex numbers (spreadsheet)
  • Analysis of a Four-Bar Linkage (Maple code)

  • Other resources:

    If you are interesting in synthesizing mechanisms and are a Pro/ENGINEER user, I suggest taking a look at SyMech (www.symech.com). It is a very useful tool.
