Maintaining Level Series

There are many times in my design career that I needed to translate an object without rotating.  Lifting an object on a table is a great example of this.  At an airport we may see a baggage loader using a scissor lift to load and unload your personal items.  In most cases, we want to maintain level with the ground, but often we just need to keep the same angle.  I once designed a holder for a seam welding robot that needed to keep the tip at a specific angle relative to the part.  It was not horizontal.

We will discuss three of these methods in this video series.
