Hi there, I am new to this forum and i find it to be very informative.


Playing around with Composer, ive been able to do easy basic kinematics and animations.

This might be simple to all of you out ther, but, for days now, i have been struggling with trying to use kinematics on a toggle clamp lol,

I know it should be simple but i just cant seem to get the shaft to move in a staight line with the handle as the handle rotates.

The links are done, but the movement is not the way i want it to be lol.


Please please please, Im going grey here with this one, can someone help explain the process to me to have the shaft move horizontally while the handle and link rotates.


The toggle clamp i am using is attached as a composer file.


Thank you , everyone.
