Some mechanisms and linkages seem impossible to design. You know exactly where each part should be when the mechanism moves, but working out the length of each link and each pivot location can be a daunting task. There’s just too many variables and unknowns. I’m not sure which is easier: trial and error or solving simultaneous equations?
