Motion Simulation with Rack fixed

Dear Experts,

Is there a Rolling type of motion possible in NX? If so how?

I am looking at simulating Rack and Pinion with Rack fixed.

Thank you Verymuch.

How about using the Rack and pinion feature ?

 

Does that help ?

I tried Rack and Pinion coupler, but I am able to select either slider or revolute joints, not both.

Please refer to attached image.

I am using a fixed rack,  a revolute (rolling) pinion and a slider support rod.

When keeping the support rod as base link for pinion, I am unable to select the created slider and revolute joints together.

(However, when base link is not selected, I am able to select both joints, but Pinion is then not rolling, just revolving.)

Please help.

Finally, the '2-3 Joint Coupler' did the trick.
