I'm trying to design a complex linkage assembly of which the defined path starts as a straight horizontal line, then at a given point, follows a circular curve 90 degrees and stops. Does there exist any program that can map out potential linkage assemblies based on a prescribed path? The only thing I've come across is MechGen which costs ~$500. I've tried using sketches in CAD software, however this involves a lot of guess-and-check work and hasn't been very fruitful.
Any suggestions/help is much appreciated, thanks!
