Model: S12 Inversion of an Ellipse Linkage of the Third Kind by Nehrlich
Many special cases of four-bar and slider-crank linkages are capable of generating ellipse curves. This compound linkage is composed of a four-bar linkage and a slider-crank and is used to generate a straight-line motion. Reuleaux wrote that this model is related to the straight-line mechanism of models S-10,11.
