ASOM v7 Example “Umbrella”

In this video the example of a typical umbrella is used to demonstrate how to purposefully create variations of a kinematic system in ASOM in order to find better solutions. For this purpose not only single elements but also groups of elements can be moved together, if necessary also restricted to  only the X or

Rear spoiler design with ASOM v7: six-bar linkage with 3 planes (part 2)

Although our six-bar syntheses strictly speaking only allow the specification of 2 plane conditions (plane = point and angle), it is still possible to design six-bar linkages in ASOM v7 to fulfill 3 (or in principle even more) plane conditions. Instead of using scripts to create only numeric displays in expressions, as shown in our

Table kinematics, linkage for lifting a table top

Basic kinematics example of a folding dining table. The middle plate in the table shown here is automatically lifted into the center position by four-bar systems on each of the two sides. The two partial systems are kinematically independent of each other.

ASOMv7

Kinematics example: friction cone and self-locking

Basic kinematics example for self-locking under force-dependent friction. Friction occurs between a vertical guideway and a fork with a mass in the center of gravity and two contact points on the guideway. This friction is described in each case by a coefficient of friction or a friction value in the two sliding bearings, which, for
