Two dimensional, or planar, mechanism design is a mainstay of Mechanical Engineering modeling and analysis. An important part of the design process is the visualizing of the motion of the mechanism. This paper describes a novel approach to visualizing the time motion of a planar mechanism — turning the time dimension into a spatial dimension. All three dimensions (x,y,time) are then treated as a 3D volume. From there, we use interactive volume visualization techniques, including slicing and thresholding. As is seen, this method is able to produce new insights into planar mechanism motion, particularly when more than one mechanism is working cooperatively.
