How do I make a pin move along an octagonal path?

I saw a forum that explained how to move a pin along a circular slot, but not for other different types of slots. The project I'm working on requires that the slot be an octagon, but I haven't been able to find a way to assemble it properly. If you need more specifics to be able to help me, plz ask.

    Onshape doesn't have "path mates" yet, but one workaround is to make a part with small curves (and then hide it) and use a tangent mate.
