A continuation method is used for the synthesis of triads for motion generation with prescribed timing applications. The procedure is applied to solve both six and seven position synthesis problems. Triad Burmester curves are generated for the six position synthesis problem and an eight-bar mechanism is designed to illustrate the procedure. For the seven position synthesis problem, a finite number of solutions are obtained. A geared five-bar, seven position path generation example is considered.
