HIPAIR: Interactive Mechanism Analysis and Design Using Configuration Spaces

Leo Joskowicz, Elisha Sacks

We present an interactive problem solving environment for reasoning about shape and motion in mechanism design. Reasoning about shape and motion plays a central role in mechanism design because mechanisms perform functions by transforming motions via part interactions. The input motion, the part shapes, and the part contacts determine the output motion. Designers must reason about the interplay between shape and motion at every step of the design cycle.
