Report the distance between two faces

Hi,

I have an assembly on which I have run a Motion Analysis, and I have attached the ZIP file to this post. I am having trouble plotting the distance between two faces as a function of time and I was hoping one of you could help me a little...

If you go into Motion Study 1 and take a Section View using the Front Plane then you will be able to see the two faces in question. I have added two screenshots to make it a little clearer.

The maximum distance apart these two faces go is roughly 90mm, and the minimum is 0mmm when they are in contact. As such the plot should be a graph going from 0mm to 90mm...

Can anyone show me how to accomplish this?

How would one plot the closing speed between these two faces?

Any help is much appreciated!
