Rack and Pinion Simulation

Post by metalfixer » Sat Mar 27, 2021 5:31 pm

Would greatly appreciate a step by step on simulating the gear
along the rack. I tried using the Links Rack and Pinion, but failed
numerous times along the way. Revolute Link works to rotate the gear,
but not travel on the rack.
Thanks

Rack and pinon just determines the motion relation between the parts

System still need a revolute joint with motor and a prismatic joint.

this is shown in the attached model.

You still need to check the parameters for the rack and pinon link
