4-Bar Linkage Gripper – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

4-Bar Linkage Gripper

A model of a 2 DOF gripper, which utilizes two pairs of 4-bar linkage mechanisms, is built using the MapleSim CAD Toolbox to import the CAD assembly created in SolidWorks. This gripper is driven by rotational and translational position drivers from the 1-D Motion Generation app.
This model uses the MapleSim CAD Toolbox
This model was created with MapleSim 2020.1
