to be honest its really not worth the effort, as its very time consuming

but.... you would make it like this. the main problem is that the chain
will fold back on itself so take heaps of snapshots as you go





-set up planar connections on the links

-set up a pin connection between the links

-set up a path profile

-put points on your links that will follow that path

-set up a slot follow connection with the points on the links and the path profile





DRIVE

set up a cam profile between the drive spockets and every few links ( allow disconnect)

make the spocket have a servo motor.



ALTErnATE

-analysis type = dynamic

-set up initial conditions tangential slot velocity = "something" but only select 1 link to use as a drive
