PyPI sourceforge kernel kernel Blog CMS


A GUI-based (PyQt5) tool used to design 2D linkage mechanism.

  • Planar Linkages Simulation

  • Mechanical Synthesis

    • Number Synthesis: Combine the attributes of mechanism.
    • Structural Synthesis: Cython algorithm used to find out structural possibilities of the mechanism.
    • Dimensional Synthesis: Kernel from the three Cython algorithms (rewrite).
  • Others

    • Cross three platforms.
    • CAD-like user interface.
    • Auto layout of generalized chain.
    • The code complies with PEP 8 and PEP 561.
