A new method is proposed for the optimum (mini-max structural error) synthesis of function-generating mechanisms with unlimited number of design specifications, and which are free from the branch defect. This method does not require the use of explicit branching constraints. It is developed and illustrated with numerical examples for the planar four-bar and the spatial R-S-S-R mechanisms.
