Chebyshev-like N=3 Polygon Wheel
Chebyshev linkage wheel variation My latest comment: ------ Pending. N= odd number case, this logic is bad (?), angle approach is good. length approach is bad. (?) Please help me! This 1st logic is true. but not wise a bit. More elegant/ simple solution exists. (ex. only Introduce 2 cramps/ KASUGAI . that's all. [ex. crimson colored WZ --- constant length restriction] ) ■My impression: Brown rigid body interface is beautiful (1 antiparallelogram + 2 parallelograms). DC/ C'C''/ D''D' is Hexagon rigid body diameter.
something rule. 1.51/2=0.755 2/√7=0.755928946 ---- very near. always triangle similarity ∽ is true. So, 1.51 should be 4/√7=1.511857892 precisely, perhaps. ■ Proof of line symmetry In this case ※, it's easy. Q: How many butterflies in above Fig. ? A: 4 ---- big (Black, Blue, Green butterfly) 3 + small (□DGFC butterfly figure, here DC=GF=2) 1 ----- 4 Antiparallelogram (wikipedia) are all similar, so □ABDC ∽ □FCDG (similar ratio is √7 : 2), then, ∠BDC = ∠CDG. (if one angle is fixed, other 3 angles are determined automatically. and , this butterfly is symmetry.) Remark: ---- There exists recursive structure. i.e. We can use Antiparallelogram as a line symmetry making tool. ---- This is Big news !!!! (?!) --- I added the sample picture in above Fig. (1:√2:√2:1, ratio case sample, total 7 bars, very simple) cf. Peaucellier–Lipkin linkage (wikipedia) same 7 bars implementation. ⊥ direction. but, above is same direction. somewhat honest (?!). ⊥ direction movement also is easy variation. ※: Chebyshev linkage 2:5:5:4 bars case, it's not easy like above. ∵ Chebyshev butterfly is not symmetry wing. I can't prove yet. ----- perhaps, different logic. Tip1: line symmetry making tool is candidates for making exact straight line tool. Hart's inversor (wikipedia) is so. ( But Hart's inversor use the property of Antiparallelogram "OR × PQ = constant". different point of view. ) Tip2: Exact straight line : Hart's Inversor or Hart's A-frame can create by 5 bars. Line symmetry: Hart's Inversor or Hart's A-frame can create by 7 bars. cf. Chebyshev N=2 Polygon Wheel -- See left side picture. But, above method can support Line symmetry by 5 bars. i.e. Case by case. They have one's strong （points） and weak points.
