Hello Everyone

 

I am trying to design geneva mechanism. (http://www.meadinfo.org/2009/05/geneva-wheel-design.html)

I am finding it difficult to create a motion study simulating the mechanism.

All I can do is use tangent mates individually for each of the 6 slots and suppress 5 of them.

 

I am not sure how to create motion study supressing and unsuppressing this tangent mates at regular intervals ( which are not known).
