    I mean...I'm sure it breaks at some point. We have not yet tested it with 390 gears.

    With all these useful constraints on the way, I'm wondering about the possibility of adding a 'motor' to create a simple kinematic system. I've sometimes used Precise Placement to achieve this in the past....

    In the same vein... A useful addition to the Rotary constraints would be a directional lock. Rotational freedom in one angular direction only. This would be great for one-way bearings, freewheels etc.

    Looks quite laggy from the selection of an item to it actually following the mouse drag!

    This can now be done easily with AlibreScript.
    Assem = CurrentAssembly()
    A1 = Assem.GetParameter('A1')
    for x in range(0,359):
        A1.Equation = str(x)

    :cool: I really need to make some time to learn AlibreScript...

    But, used properly, this is what Equation Editor values are for. I.E. a0_a1_Fit_Clear set to (say) .0005 (etc.).

    With that working, now we need cam following, etc. to get that escapement working too. :)
