Using the Point-On-Curve Block : Flapping Wing Mechanism

This model simulates a barrel cam based wing flapping mechanism. This is based on the mechanism shown in the video www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5kmnHmJZMQ. This is a one degree of freedom mechanism and the two wings flap in sync with each other. The Spline and Point On Curve blocks have been used to model the Barrel Cam mechanism that actuates the flapping motion of the wings.
