Mechanism Generator FG and Suspension for iPad/iPhone helps you design a four-bar linkage in an intuitive and touch-enabled environment.
MechGen FG connects the rotation of an input crank to the coordinated rotation of an output crank. The design data and an animation of your linkage are easily distributed by email.
This iPad/iPhone app synthesizes a four-bar linkage for function generation. A function generator allows for the output link to rotate at an angle, which follows a desired function of the input angle. The user specifies the input-output function as five input-output angles for the two cranks. Our software then synthesizes linkages and displays an animation for performance verification. In addition the design algorithm is run iteratively on toleranced positions within acceptable variations, to generate multiple solutions.
