Kinematic scheme

  1. Jun 29, 2008 #1
    I am not sure if I'm in the right section to post this, but I'm going to try anyway...

    Could anybody please show me how to sketch a kinematc scheme of this structure? I don't know how to represent the joints (especially the sliding ones).

    Thank you.

    The diagram looks challenging. I'd like to help but I don't know what you mean by a kinematic scheme. What's your ultimate goal? To get an equation for the position/orientation of reference frame six as a function of the position/orientation of all the other reference frames?

    My goal is to represent that machine replacing its parts with special symbols (basically I have to draw its simplified representation), and it seems easier, now that I found out it can be 3-D.

    You already have a diagram in 3D. You want to replace that nice diagram with something more abstract? Do you have a symbol set in mind?
