How to simulate gravity in assembly.
I am constructing a very simple device which is essentially cloth tension device which has a manually operated rod whit ratchet wheel and a pin to stop it from moving backward. I believe i managed to model all the parts of an assembly and join them with respective joins. I would love to see how the pin fits to the ratchet wheel in the circular motion. I couldn't find a function to apply either gravity on pin to naturally fall onto wheel and move up and down the teeth as the wheel turns. Is there any way to simulate this?
