A general method for synthesizing spatial linkages (derived in a previous paper [1]) is applied to the design of various types of binary links and combined link chains. Equations governing those special points and lines which define the link dimensions are derived. Types and order of loci of such special points and lines and the maximum number of design positions for each link are given. Numerical method for computing these special points and lines are discussed, and a numerical example is presented.
