2 Number Synthesis ± Definition of number synthesis The determination of number and order of links and joints necessary to produce motion of a given DOF. ± Link order Nodes per link – binary, ternary, etc. ± Purpose Allows an exhaustive determination of all possible combinations of links that will yield a chosen M.

3 Hypothesis (theorem) ± If all joints are full joints (J) (revolute or prismatic), then odd M requires even L, and vice versa. { { even even is L if odd odd is L if even even minus odd if odd even minus even if even 2 ) 1 ( 3 J L M = 3 2 1
