A compilation of LEGO Technic parts to support learning experiments on linkages

Article by Zoltán Kovács and Benedek Kovács

  • Added on
We present a compilation of LEGO Technic parts to provide easy-to-build constructions of basic planar linkages. Some technical issues and their possible solutions are discussed. Fine details -- like deciding whether the motion is an exactly straight line or not -- are forwarded to the dynamic mathematics software tool GeoGebra.
