How to Model Clever Mechanism?

Question asked by Willard Raymond on Nov 21, 2017

I  have been a Solidworks user since 2001 and have not had to model a mechanism like this until now.

I need to model a mechanism similar to the one shown in this video. (pretty cool motion)

This was modeled in Inventor. I need to figure out how to model this in Solidworks.

One cam follower follows a simple path, that is clear and easy.

The other cam follower follows a path with a Y.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for modeling/verifying  this type of motion.


Thanks power users.
