Images and descriptions
Each model in Cornell’s Reuleaux collection is cataloged, illustrated, and described in KMODDL and other mechanical artifact collections will be added in the future. The kinematics of nearly half of the Reuleaux mechanisms is captured in user-controlled moving images. In these interactive photographic animations a sequence of snapshots illustrates the motion the mechanism as the user slides the mouse.
You may browse all the models in the collection by selecting the “models” link from the right sidebar on the KMODDL homepage. You can also browse the models by category, or search by (English or German) title words (e.g., “linkage,” “prismatic,” “Schubkurbel”) or by keyword in the description. Clicking on the model thumbnail from the search or browse results will bring up a descriptive page for each model with links to moving images and related resources.
