Graphical methods are presented for designing linkages that have two inputs and one output. Two basic approaches are developed. The desired function is matched at a limited number of positions with the maximum number being seven. Designs are also developed which match the derivatives of the desired function at a single point. The designs were developed with ease of solution and broadness of application as primary considerations.
