The necessary conditions for the existence of two-loop six-link R-R-C-C-R-C-C overconstrained mechanism are developed by extending Dimentberg’s approach of passive coupling. The developed conditions are examined to describe the geometry of the R-R-C-C-R-C-C mechanism for the existence of one general constraint.
