Short summary
Thickness-utilizing deployable hard stops (ThUDS) block the motion of a mechanism at a desired position. Designed to reside within the thickness of a design, they can be planar or spatial in nature. Various analyses and design techniques were developed and demonstrated using physical prototypes. ThUDS are able to successfully constrain motion, are able to carry loads, and are useable in various folding applications, including origami-based engineering.
