Overconstrained linkage, polyhedral linkage, Bennett linkage
In this study, assemblies of Bennett loops constructing regular polygonal linkages and regular polyhedral linkages are presented. The regular polyhedral linkages, necessarily, depend on spherical polyhedral shapes. Most of the resulting linkages have single degree of freedom, but there are exceptions such as a cubic linkage.
