Joints and Motions

Cylindrical - joint allowing 1 translational and 1 rotational degree of freedom about or along a common axis

Free Motion - joint allowing 3 translational and 3 rotational degrees of freedom

Planar - joint allowing 2 translational and 1 rotational degree of freedom (the rotational degree of freedom is about an axis perpendicular to the two translational axes)

Prescribed Rotation - motion driver that converts input signals into sequential rotational motion

Prescribed Translation - motion driver that converts input signals into 3-D translational motion

Prismatic - joint allowing 1 translational degree of freedom along a given axis

Revolute - joint allowing 1 rotational degree of freedom about a given axis

Spherical - joint allowing 3 rotational degrees of freedom

Universal - joint allowing 2 rotational degrees of freedom about 2 orthogonal axes

XYZ Translational - joint allowing 3 translational degrees of freedom
