When more requirements have to be considered, it is more difficult to find all possible compromise and we just sample at regular intervals the intersection of the allowed regions, each node of the sampling representing a unique robot geometry. If some allowed regions have been obtained with a relaxation of the constraints, we will check that the design solution obtained for a node will satisfy the full constraints. Whenever possible, this verification will be performed by assigning a range for the design parameters, whose width will be the corresponding tolerances; if a node is validated as a design solution then the real robot obtained for the node, with the stated tolerances, will also satisfy the specifications.

Assume that it is necessary to calculate the allowed regions for a set of n requirements {F1, …, Fn}. A possibility for calculating the allowed region of requirement Fk, k > 1, is to initialise the list L not with the search domain but with the list of boxes obtained when calculating the allowed region of the requirement Sk–1. Hence, we start with the calculation of the allowed region for F1 with the full search domain. Then, the result is used for the calculation for F2: the resulting boxes will be the values of the design parameters such that both F1, F2 are verified.

8 where the first index of the subscript stands for the number of the link, while the second index stands for the number of the mechanism. 9 shows the mechanism synthesised after performing an optimisation of the distribution of the mass. 3 Synthesis of Reactionless Parallel 3-dof Mechanisms The 2-dof mechanism introduced in the preceding subsection can also be used to synthesise reactionless parallel 3-dof mechanisms. This can be achieved by using the 2-dof mechanism as a leg for the 3-dof mechanism.
