AXOID

The axoid is the ruled surface generated by the consecutive positions of the instantaneous screw axis of a solid in motion, either in the fixed space (*fixed axoid*), or in the space linked to the solid (*moving axoid*); this notion is the generalization to space of the base and rolling curve of the motion of a plane over a fixed plane.
