Simulate interacting gears or cams (1-directional dependency)

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
DriverDThe input gearCurve
FollowerFThe gear which is affected by the driverCurve
AxleAThe point about which the Follower gear rotates. Moving this during simulation will move the gear along with itPoint
CompoundCAn optional curve (or list of curves) to attach to the movement of the follower gear, but not itself be affected by the driverCurve
PullPOption for whether to pull the curves togetherBoolean
ResetRSet to true to bring curves back to original locationsBoolean

Outputs
