Step 17.1: About Add Pulley, Kinematics of Pulley-Rocker

General Procedure to add Pulley Elements

Add Pulley relates the motion of a Belt with the motion of Pulleys along the Belt.

One Driving-Pulley can specify the motion of the Belt and all of the other Driven-Pulleys along the Belt.

Also, a Belt can drive all of the Driven-Pulleys along the Belt.
