How to tilt a object

  1. Feb 12, 2012 #1
    Hi all,
    Im designing a portable device and a part of that device would need to "tilt" a object.
    For example if I were to put a rod into a cylinder, the cylinder would need to move at tilted angle to have the rod face another direction. Like back and forward, side to side, or even make it rotate the rod at different angles.

    are there any examples or theories on how to do this?

    Thank you

    You may not need six axes. Do you know exactly how many degrees of freedom you need?
