hello everyone,

I'm trying to model a system in simscape using the simMechanics blocks.
The system im trying to model is: a ball bearing connected eccentrically to a motor axis. On that ball bearing lays a beam. The edge of the beam is connected to an axis. so, the system looks like this:

I managed to model all the elements, but I don't know how to keep the beam tangent to the ball bearing.
motor = blue, motor axis = cyan and purple

Right now the beam (orange) just pass through the ball bearing (green)

any idea how to do it?

Essentially you have a cam-follower problem. Would it not be more useful to analyze the problem and then use whatever software is more most appropriate for the solution?
