I just spotted this Linkage Mechanism designer and simulator which I thought may be of interest to others.

I just downloaded my copy. I can see many an hour spent building lots of things that do nothing but look awesome!

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Tweakie,

Looks like an interesting program. I noticed that some folks asked if it can provide calc's and it does not.
Back in the day, when doing some mechanism designs at work, the program would have saved a lot of hard thinking.
Good grief I still recall the mechanism courses we had to take and all the calc's required to design the individual parts. Surely should come in handy  for quick and dirty  robotics stuff thus no need to do it in 3D and simulate.

WOW, cool Tweakie. Thanks for the post.
Combining this with Gearotic, one could make some very interesting displays.

Hi Tweakie.
That link gets me:
Sorry, this video is no longer available.
Maybe I can find some similar.
Thanks,
