Coordinates of a point in  moving mechanism

Question asked by Aditya Garg on Jun 21, 2012

I am using a personal copy of SW 2006 version


I have a simple mechanism which has a linear rotating link rotating about an axis. Another link is attached to the end of this rotor link via pin joint, and this 2nd link is free to pivot about this pin joint. The angle of the pivoting link with respect to the tangent at its pin joint is called pitch angle. Basically what I want to do is this - I have a table that has a pitch angle value corresponding to certain rotor link angles. 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 would appreciate help on how to get this data.
