hi systemiq.

i have been reading the two papers we mentioned and i have contacted one of the author's regarding specifics. it appears to me that there may in fact be lengths of the legs provided in one of these two articles and my impression is that the author's are saying that there are in fact /two/ linkages (Dixon's Mechanisms?) that allow for a kinematic animation.

But in all honesty i cannot tell if they are saying that this is due to the /arrangement/ of the legs or if it is due to the /length/ of the legs. Can anyone tell?

For instance does, this section from one of the two papers linked below provide this or can the file here (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15285654/kinematic%20linkage.3dm) be animated like you animated the PRISM shape in the video above?

hi systemiq and ryles. a big thanks. this is quite interesting. i am going to re-read david's primer one last time and try and jump into the deep pool here on the GH forums.

but can i please ask you if it is a trivial thing for you to drop in this file [http://universaljointdesign.com/ninebar] instead of the one you have here? i should be up and running on this next week but if there is an opportunity to see how this geometry works with your code it would be mighty interesting for me and i can figure out how to finalize this...

regards,

- jon
