How to get coordinates of a point in a moving linkage

Question asked by Aditya Garg on Jun 17, 2012

I am using a personal copy of SW 2006 version, without Physical Simulation add-on.

 

I have a simple mechanism which has a rotating link. Another pivoting link (pitch angle) is attached to the end of this rotor link. Basically what I want to do is this - I have a table that has a pitch angle value corresponding to rotor angle value. I want to be able to input this table somehow, and have the software "animate" the mechanism, and output coordinates of a given point on the linkage for each pair of rotor angle and pitch angle.

 

I have almost no experience with macros, and would appreciate help on how to get this data.
