A machanism composed by two 90° oriented cams and connected by link rod with two spherical joints cannot be simulated because it's impossible to resolve one DOF.
If somebody would like to help me I will send files by mail.
Exacly! That is the point! I tried to fix rotation but in this case , after creating automatic joints, there is couple not resolved.
With rotational joint the mechanism dont work because there is relative rotation between crank and rod ( two crank lever are 90° oriented).
What you means U joint?
BTW its impossible that spherical joint cannot be simulated. Where is a mistake?
Sorry but one part was forgotten.
Beautifull solution, like a "Columbus egg", I tried to fix rotation in many different way but unsuccesfull.
My big machinery (horse simulator) work fine now.
Thank you very much
