The analysis of compliant mechanisms has traditionally based on known initial shapes and external forces. For applications, it is often required to find an initial shape for the specified deformed shape of the mechanism. We present here the global coordinate model (GCM) with a numerical solver that is capable of forward and inverse analysis. The model uses… CONTINUE READING
