Ok so for work i am in need of the simulation of a mechanical cam clutch simulated for an animation. for those who don't know what a mechanical cam clutch is, it is basically a big socket wrench bearing made to only allow shafts to spin one direction, and lock up when spinning the other direction.

how would i go about mating a bearing that acts like that

 

TL;DR: i need to simulate a socket wrench movement, what do?
