    Unexpected jamming of an assembly with physical dynamics

    Eg Gloo

      Hi all


      I have a small assembly with several parts misaligned. By turning the grey wheel, the grey block is to rotate about its axis (Axis 1). The problem I have is that the grey wheel can't be turned further anti-clockwise given the current position. It seems to be jammed.




      The red connecting rod can freely slide in the yellow bore, which itself freely has a rod in the grey bore. I'd expect the red rod to extend further and turn the yellow connector.

      Does anyone know why the wheel might be jammed? Am I misunderstanding the use of physical dynamics?

      I've attached the assy.
