FlexLinks were developed for quick turn-around proof-of-concept prototyping of compliant mechanisms by the BYU Compliant Mechanism Research Group. Combined with commercial components from the LEGO Group, custom compliant components can be used to build a wide range of compliant mechanisms.
FlexLinks can either be 3D printed or cut out of polypropylene with a mill, CNC router, or water jet.

The BYU Compliant Mechanisms Research Group (CMR) involves students and faculty who strive to make an impact by creating compliant mechanism theories and applications that are novel, used by others, and make a difference for good.
