Allow Variable Gear Ratios in Mechanisms

Allow Variable Gear Ratios in Mechanisms

It is not currently possible to represent a variable ratio gear in mechanism.  This is needed for defining motion of a continuously variable transmission (CVT).  The functionality could be integrated into the gear definition by specifying a parameter which would be varied throughout a motion analysis. As an added enhancement for other non-static meshes, the gear ratio could be a user defined ratio with respect to angular position of one gear.
