The synthesis of geared spherical five-bar mechanisms with application to the function generation problem is considered for multiply separated position specifications. Special gear train values reduce the geared five-bar to the elementary spherical four-bar. The planar four- and five-bar become a design subset to the spherical five-bar. Design procedures with complete formulation are outlined in detail.
