Belt design - Animation

Mr_GKMr_GK Member Posts: 4
Hi Folks,

I designed this model bellow.


What is the best for for designing a belt part for this assembly?

1 - Open the document
2 - Go to Main Assembly Tab
3 - Animate "Pulley Animation" Mate

Observe that the belt does not remain as it should be.

How can I design this belt and animate this assembly?

    I added a cylindrical and a revolute mate. It looks like that the animation is working fine.
