motion analysis

Hi everyone;

Can anyone give me some hint on how to perform motion analysis of a system consisting of a roller feeder feeding  a single sheet of paper from the the paper case each time to the next roller feeder?.(I wanted to show  a performance similar to printer working principle)


To clearly specify the problem I faced ,the roller is rotating while the paper is translating horizontally and they are not in contact at the start.When I try to add  contact between the roller and the paper and added gravity ,the paper is moving downward instead of moving forward.


Any attempt I amde to find related motion analysis was not successful.If I can get one example in motion analysis showing the rotation of some parts resulting in translation of the other parts.


so many thanks
