An algorithm is presented, based on graph theory, for enumerating all feasible serial and/or parallel combined mechanisms from the given rotary or translational power source and specific kinematic building blocks. Through the labeled out-tree representations for the configurations of combined mechanisms, the enumeration procedure is developed by adapting the algorithm for the enumeration of trees. A rotary power source and four kinematic building blocks: a crank-rocker linkage, a rack-pinion, a double-slider mechanism, and a cam-follower mechanism, are chosen as the combination to illustrate the algorithm. And, two examples are provided to validate the algorithm.
