Description

The Ideal Rotational to Translational Gear (or Ideal Gear R2T) component transforms 1D-rotation to 1D-translation. It is lossless and has no mass or inertia.

The Use Support R and Use Support T boolean parameters enable rotational and translational support flanges. When true (checked) the corresponding support flange must be connected. When false the flange is internally fixed to ground.
