Short summary
Compliant mechanisms utilize the deformation of the elastic members to achieve the desired motion. Currently, design and analysis of compliant mechanisms rely on several commercial dynamics and finite element simulation tools. However, these tools do not implement the most recently developed theories in compliant mechanism research. DAS 2D is a conceptual design tool which integrates the recently developed pseudo-rigid-body models.
