In this paper, the principle of transference is developed and applied to the establishment of a systematic procedure for the determination, via screw calculus, of a prescribed rigid body motion. This is an essential first step toward the study of the intrinsic properties of point trajectories in three-dimensional kinematics. Two numerical examples are presented for illustrative purposes.
