Poisson’s ratio is one of the most studied material proper- ties that can be designed in mechanical metamaterials. However, in most studies so far, Poisson’s ratio is not constant for larger compressions. Only for structures in which ν = −1, structures with a constant Poisson’s ratio have been demonstrated. This paper studies the design of planar mechanical metamaterials with a constant Poisson’s ratio based on the pantograph, inversor, straight-line and parabolograph mechanisms. Using these classical mechanisms as building blocks, periodic mechanisms with 0 and 1 are proposed.
