Unformatted text preview: on spaces. The ﬁrst step uses generalized conﬁguration spaces, called contact zones [Kyung and Sacks, 2003], to ﬁnd parameter vectors that maximize individual contacts. The second step uses conﬁguration space matching [Kyung and Sacks, 2003a] to identify failure modes and uses kinematic simulation [Sacks and Joskowicz, 1993] to compute motion variation. We review prior work on kinematic tolerancing elsewhere [Kyung and Sacks, 2003]. This work has evolved beyond what is reported here. A full description of the current algorithm with additional examples will appear in [Kyung and Sacks, 2006]. 2. CONFIGURATION SPACE We use conﬁguration spaces [Sacks and Joskowicz, 1995] to represent higher pair kinematic function. The conﬁguration space of a pair is a manifold with one coordinate per part degree of freedom (rotation or translation). Points in conﬁguration space correspond to conﬁgurations of the pair. The conﬁguration space partitions into blocked space where the parts overlap, fre...
