top down design for desired movement

Can anyone share any examples or tips of top-down design using part/assembly sketches for layout as demonstrated in a few examples by Mauricio Martinez-Saez BUT where the goal of driving the design is to analyse a desired movement (set of movements) in the assembly? I've looked around but only found static assemblies or parts.


I imagine the process would be similar, maybe using an assembly using the layout in rigid subassemblies for design, and then a separate flexible assembly using the parts mated together for the movement. Automotive projects seem a good candidate where people would do it (i.e. have experience with what I mean), e.g. quarter car suspension, or a basic full car - driving track and wheelbase for example.


thanks in advance
