    Wheel on a heel block

    Bryan Ray

      I've got an assembly that uses a wheel and cam or heel block to translate vertical motion into horizontal motion.  Simplified picture below.  I can't use a cam mate because the heel block does not make a continuous loop.  Any ideas on how to make the wheel move left/right as the heel moves up/down.  The wheel must follow the profile of the heel over the flats, angle and radii.
