How can I model a line shaft belt?

Hello all,


I need to model a line shaft belt in SW 2012 and then allow it to move on it's pulleys. The configuration of the belt that I need to model is shown in the image below.

The belt rides on a total of four pulleys that are on perpendicular shafts which lie in parallel, non-coincident planes. The pulleys operate in a differential manner. The profile of the belt seen in the image is not important in the model as this is an internal component for my desgin and is needed only for a motion study/animation of the design functionalty. A simple line representation of the belt will suffice for my purposes.


Thanks in advance,
