Hinge Introduction


The Hinge is a versatile OpenVSP component that enables multiple connection types within your model. Far more than a clever Blank, the Hinge facilitates both translation and rotation about an axis that may be described using XForm rotations, vectors, offsets, or surface references. Furthermore, multiple Hinges may be linked together or even programmed using Advanced Links to create complex kinematics within your parametric geometry. This video will provide an introduction to the Hinge component and describe a few of its functions.
