Mechanism Generator FG & SP

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.

MechGen Susupension allows the user to specify five camber angles, five wheel positions, and the lower A arm for the suspension.


This is an app that designs double wishbone suspension linkage. The app takes in five camber angles and five wheel travels to capture the entire movement of the wheel. In addition, the user defines the lower A Arm for the suspension in its simple and intuitive interface. Four-bar suspension designs are generated and presented to the users as animations, for performance evaluation. The app also has the facility to generate design data report which could be sent as an email.
