Hey, I just started a course in mechanism design this semester and I was wondering if there was a free/inexpensive piece of software that would allow me to simulate/analyze simple mechanisms including linkages, joints, and such. Perhaps there might also be some sort of java applet on the web that does this as well?

As an example, Artas' SAM seems to do just this (http://www.artas.nl/), but it costs up,to a few thousand dollars.

Thanks in advance!

I remember PTC once offering free/evaluation versions of some of their software, and it included simulation capabilities. You might try their website -- http://www.ptc.com
