Short summary
Overconstrained linkages always need fewer links to realize complex motion in a 3D space and are supposed to be great for constructing large deployable structures. However, the strict geometric conditions are hard to use in a complicated 3D environment. In this study, joint clearance is actively introduced to improve the adaptivity of the linkages (with an example given). This work is significant for improving the application of overconstrained linkages in a complicated environment.
