FlexLinks

FlexLinks were developed for quick turn-around proof-of-concept prototyping of compliant mechanisms. Combined with commercial components from the LEGO Group, custom compliant components can be used to build a wide range of compliant mechanisms. This page includes files that can be downloaded to make a number of custom compliant components that are compatible with LEGO components. Two file formats are provided for each component: dxf and vnc. We hope that you find these files useful.
