Abstract

A mechanism able to generate rodonee similar to corollas of natural flowers was conceived. It consists of two leading elements and dyade of type RRP. The leading elements movements are correlated by means of a linear relation characterised by a coefficient q. Several pictures, corresponding to different values of q, were obtained. In this paper, different natural corolles are identified with pictures generated by this original mechanism. Dialipetal and gamopetalous corollas were sources of inspiration for the creation of certain extremely beautiful curves. The mechanism can be used as a model or toy able to plot these curves.
