Lesson Objective: 
In this lesson, we will continue to learn about the other types of mechanism constraints, starting with the Slider. 
The slider connection is used to capture one component moving in a straight line. The component is notallowed to rotate in any direction, and can only translate in the single direction specified.

You would use a slider connection to capture motion for:
Drawer opening and closing
An object dropping straight down
Object riding along a straight track
Any object moving in a straight line In this example, we are actually going to see a combination of slider and pin connections to accomplish ourassembly motion. Therefore, begin by opening up the assembly called
. It will initially look likethe following. We are going to assemble a series of sliders that will ride in the two “T” shaped tracks. At the top of bothof these sliders will be a connecting arm that will rotate, causing the two sliders to ride forwards andbackwards in their respective tracks. Therefore, the physical motion of each individual slider component will best be captured using a sliderconstraint (as each is moving in a single linear direction with no rotations). To start, assemble in the
part. When the
window appears, we are going toclick on the
tab to get to the Mechanism constraints. It will most likely default to a
constraint,so we will need to change that to a
, as shown below. The
window looks like the following once you select the

 We can see that we need to pick two axes or edges to define the
Axis Alignment
, and we also need topick to planes or planar surfaces to define the
constraint. Therefore, we will start by picking the following datum curve and edge for the
Axis Alignment 
constraint. We created a datum curve because we want an edge that runs the entire length of our base part. We couldhave easily created an axis as well. When we pick these two references, they should automatically line upwith each other. Next we need to define two planes or planar surfaces that will fix the rotation about the selected edges. It iseasier to use two surfaces that already intersect the edges that we picked, but you can also use ones thatdon’t touch and set an offset distance. In this case, we will pick a surface on each part that the selected edges already lie in, as shown below.
