Folding Door Controlled by Cable

The door consists of two slider-crank mechanisms.
Driving parts are violet sliders that are brought into motion by a motor via a cable drive of two pink pulleys. Lower branch of the cable is fixed to the left slider. The upper branch is fixed to the right slider.
Thanks to the eccentricity of the slider-crank mechanisms there no dead positions when the door is at its closed position.
