The short answer is that there's no easy way to get a 3 part assy thatwill move like this through dragging. You can get it to do that if youmodel the ball bearings in the drawer slide and add the properconnections to them. More trouble than I want to go through for a modelof a purchased part. I guess you can use motors that move at different speeds to drive theassy as I described, but that won't work by dragging. Again, more workthan I wanted to do. The real answer was to check my assumptions on the slide. It *seems*that the middle race moves at half the rate of the inner, but it doesn't*have* to. The middle race is actually free to move independent of theinner. So, a simple mechanism with limits does the trick.Doug Schaefer This thread is inactive and closed by the PTC Community Management Team.
