This paper presents a new technique for determining the fixed axes of spatial CC dyads for rigid body guidance through five finitely separated positions. A CC dyad is a kinematic chain consisting of a floating link connected by a cylindric joint to a crank which in turn is connected to ground by a second cylindric joint. The lines that can be axes of the fixed joint are shown to be obtained from a “compatibility platform” constructed from selected relative screw axes associated with the five specified displacements. We show that the screw axis of the displacement of this platform is a fixed axis of a CC dyad compatible with the five positions. Roth’s original example is presented to verify the calculations. The specialization of this procedure to planar and spherical five position synthesis is also presented.
