ASOMmini four-bar linkage

Creation of a simple planar mechanism using the ASOMmini kinematics software.

The individual steps for this are as follows:

  • A four-bar linkage is constructed as a kinematic chain
  • The rack-mounted object is defined
  • A drive function is defined at one of the four rotary joints
  • Tracks showing the kinematic movement are switched on
  • A diagram of the velocity over time including its components is created
  • The coupler is given a mass and the resulting bearing forces are visualized
  • Friction is added to the bearing joints
  • The coefficients of friction and the pin diameters are partly modified
  • The kinematic is adapted until it is able to turn fully
  • The animation is started
