Simulation - Struggling to solve

Unread post by McGnity » Fri Aug 28, 2020 11:07 pm

Hi, I have been spending a lot of time trying to solve how to simulate mechanism shown in image below.
It is about a pneumatic cylinder with a translating and rotational movement.
Of course, translation movement is not a problem but… how to add rotation driven by a pin within a notch. Notch was created in TopSolid Design using “Rolling up Wizard” it is quite good.
I have already tried several different joints like “Point on Shape”, “Point on Profile” always without success.
I understand that may be difficult to understand based no a picture, but any help is welcome.
