Motion simulation of roller chain on a changing path.

asked in Simulation by (120 points)
recategorized by


I'm trying to make the motion simulation of a lifter mechanism I designed. The lifter uses an idler sprocket mounted on a cylinder rod that pushes the roller chain upward. The roller chain makes a parabola shape as the cylinder rod extends. That is the travel path of the roller chain changes continuously. This cylinder rod reaches the top and then retracts down. The motion repeats again.

I really appreciate any help regarding this.
