This model has 5 components; the Camgear, lever, motor pinion, housing, and a sensor.
The motor pinion drives the camgear which then moves the lever translationally via a curved pin slot joint. The curved pin slot joint is modeled using a lookup table. The curved slot also has hardstop defined using Simscape.

Terrific example showing how to implement a nonlinear constraint. The geometry files make it very clear what is Happening. Great work.




1. Removed local paths to STL files
2. Uses recommended solvers for Simscape
3. Replace the Memory block with a filter
