Grahic Jump Location
Workspace of the considered Linear Delta robot (the arrows represent the directions of the universal joint central axes) (lengths in meters)
Grahic Jump Location
Conformation of the constraint singularity surface (lengths in meters): (a) α1=0,α2=0,α3=0; (b) α1=0,α2=π/2,α3=π/2; (c) α1=π/2,α2=π/2,α3=π/2
Grahic Jump Location
Mapping of the condition number cc on the symmetry plane xz (lengths in meters): (a) α1=0,α2=0,α3=0; (b) α1=0,α2=π/2,α3=π/2; (c) α1=π/2,α2=π/2,α3=π/2; the joint mobility bounds the workspace to the region delimited by the white dashed line; the constraint singularity surface is placed outside the workspace

Scheme of the Linear Delta robot (the arrows represent the axes of the universal joint rotational pairs)
