Tutorial 5: Degrees of Freedom

In this tutorial it is discussed, how the information that the kinematics software ASOM v7 displays about the degrees of freedom of a kinematic system or multi-bar system can be used to create functioning kinematic systems.

It is also shown how to use multiple drives or multiple motions simultaneously to define movement in multiple degrees of freedom in a useful way.

For exercise, it might be instructive to try and apply the concept also to other types of kinematic systems (e.g. systems with sliding joints and guides, or other multi-bar linkages).
