In a mechanism that is driven by an oscillating cam-follower, the motion is usually designed for a Tool-Part and the oscillating motion of the Cam-Follower is found with Inverse-Kinematics.
Similarly, a mechanism may be driven by a crank that rotates completely (360º). Again, the motion is designed for the Tool, and the continuously rotating motion for the crank is found with Inverse-Kinematics.
This is a typical application of the Continuous-Crank FB - it finds the correct length and rotational motion of the Crank.

STEP 1: Add a Continuous-Crank FB to the graphic-area
The Continuous-Crank FB is now in the graphic-area and Assembly-Tree.
STEP 2: Open the Continuous-Crank dialog:
The Continuous-Crank dialog is now open.
