... the reconfigurable limbs. The paper further presents a mobility-change condition to construct a metamorphic mechanism with the reconfigurable limbs. This gives a family of metamorphic parallel mechanisms that have the facility to change mobility in the range of 3– 6. A further family of metamorphic parallel...

...Xilun Ding; Yi Yang The traditional artifacts are very popular to play with for their magic tricks and these transformations contain potential theory of mechanisms. The assembly-circles artifact is a metamorphic mechanism which can change its configuration and shape through the motion of joints...

...Liping Zhang; Delun Wang; Jian S. Dai A methodology for synthesis and configuration design of metamorphic mechanisms is developed in this paper based on biological modeling and genetic evolution with biological building blocks. The goal is to conceive an appropriate source-metamorphic-mechanism...
