"cardan gear mechanism" by Meccano kinematics - 20/02/2012
13.820 bytes
This model represents a cardan gear mechanism. The mechanism translates a rotary motion into a straight line motion and is part of a drawing machine.

A video of how the mechanism works can be seen here: http://www.mekanizmalar.com/cardan_gear.html.

Don't ask why the 25t gear rotates in the VM model as the 15t and 25t gear are not engaged with each other. Yet, the mechanism works correct.

With thanks to Pierre Monsallut who made a correct working model in VirtualMEC.
