In this paper, a novel Reconfigurable Spherical Motion Generator is proposed. The aim of the proposed redundant parallel manipulator is to provide unlimited spherical motion. The conceptual design is first presented and followed by three different prototypes. The motivations of each prototype are explained and the structures of each prototype are described in detail. During the development of RSMG, different problems have been addressed and solved by the following up prototypes.
