    How to Model Clever Mechanism?

    Willard Raymond

      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)

      https://youtu.be/ukWPhCSAtrA

      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.
