Learn How Four Bar Linkages Work | Grashof's Criterion | Four Bar Mechanism in SOLIDWORKS | CADable

3 0 Beginner
In this tutorial we will learn how four bar linkages work. We will create and assemble these linkages in SOLIDWORKS. I will describe crank rocker mechanism (one complete revolution) and double crank mechanism (two complete revolutions). These four linkages are: 1) Fixed Link or Ground Link (q) 2) Shortest Link or Crank (s) 3) Longest Link or Coupler (l) 4) Remaining Link or Rocker (p) I have explained Grashof's principle on which these linkages work. s + l ≤ p + q I have also shown few examples. Some are: 1) Bicycle 2) Wiper Mechanism 3) Door Mechanism 4) Oil Well Pump 5) Locking Plier 6) Suspension Mechanism We will assemble these using simple mates (coincident and concentric). After assembling these link we will perform motion study in SOLIDWORKS Motion Analysis. We will give input at crank (20 rpm) and see the response on the output link (p). It is a good exercise for beginners and it will be a good practice for beginners. Kindly use play pause technique for practice. I have attached files in t

Four 4-Jaw Chuck

1 0 Expert
In this video tutorial we will be modeling a Four Jaw chuck based on 2D assembly drawing. In this video I will explain how to approach such drawings and reading all the dimensions. This is a full length video in which every single concept, basics and tricks will be covered related to Assembly Modeling. A lathe chuck is used to hold bar stock, to be machined. It is mounted on the head-stock spindle of the lathe. To accommodate different sizes of bar stock, its jaws are required to be adjustable. All the jaws can be adjusted simultaneously, as in the case of a self-centering chuck, by manipulating it from one point, or each jaw may be adjustable independently. The jaws in this design are adjusted by manipulating a screwed pair. The jaws should be so adjusted that the bar stock, held in the chuck, is properly centered and rotates as desired.
