In this paper we present an algebraic formulation for the constraint manifold of the spatial CC dyad in the image space of spatial displacements. We then present a technique, utilizing the constraint manifold, for performing the dimensional synthesis of mechanisms for rigid body guidance through n positions. Finally, we present numerical results for 10 prescribed positions for the coupler of a spatial 4C mechanism.
