The spherical drag-link mechanism has been designed using an approach based on minimum transmission angle. Explicit relationships have been derived for the required dimensions which satisfy the criteria of minimum transmission angle, and a design chart for the solution of spherical drag-link mechanisms (similar to that of Hain) is presented. Also, the seven cognates of the spherical drag-link mechanisms are identified and discussed.
