Hydraulic cylinder animation


Active member
I am working on modeling a lifting mechanism using Pro Engineer 2001. I am unable so far to select driver for piston movement in hydraulic cylinder.

Can anyone help me.

Thanks, Israr

I have tried that before. Actually the cylinder has to rotate while the piston has to translate to lift a mechanism up and the other way roud motion. This I got with a cam driver but I'm not satisfied with that.

Thank any way for reply and future response.
