I'm trying to model a pully and cable system, in this system it is required to use non parallel pullies. Is it possible to Do?
Yes it is possible, do you have any models or pictures??
Please see attached picture. I could not find how to upload a zip file with the assembly
I have "modeled" the cable as a sketch line.
How do you plan in holding the rope with the horizontal pulley's, thinking you need another set angled to reduce the amount of change within a certain point..
the picture I sent is a very simplified model for solving the solid works issues. the actual plan has all of the required engineering.

What you see are not SolidWorks issues, people may think I'm blunt and have no feelings, but you're not dealing with SW issues, your dealing with understanding Solidworks issues, get training, go on youtube, go on SW website and do the tutorials.....
R u out of your mind?
Are you asking if this system is physically possible? Or are you asking if it can be modeled?
This was modeled in Solidworks, so yes, your concept is possible to model:
As for it being physically possible?
See this site and scroll down to # 26:
Industrial Antiquity - Line Shaft Pulleys and Belting (part two)
I know that such a sytem can work, my queation is how to model it in SolidWorks, I and picture you sent the pullies are parallel, while in my application the pullies are not parallel.
Thanks for you Help.
What you need to do is make a simple test assembly with two pcs of wood and four empty thread spools and use screws to attach the spools to the wood pc, get a thread and run it from one spool to the other and see what happens, you may need to either add spools or angle the spools a little or have another spool configuration....
