Assembly Mate Type

Question asked by Rob Haman on Jun 26, 2015

I've had very good luck learning new tools and options through this forum so here is another.

 

This is the pendulum rocker point and yoke for a clock, and will rotate the gears as the pendulum swings. I've not figured out a combination of mates that moves the yoke with respect to the swinging of the pendulum rod. The pendulum moves as it should, and moving the yoke turns the gears as it should, now to get the two of them to move together and complete the system.

 

It's not that I have to do this, but as this whole project has been for learning, if it's possible - then why not?

The real trick(impossibility) may be to simulate the escapement/timing wheel motion...
