Virtual Rotation Axis

It is an application of parallelogram mechanisms.
Two acsymmetric eccentrics for each crank shaft and two conrods help parallelogram mechanisms overcome their dead positions.
Input: pink crank shaft.
The orange tool rotates around a virtual axis.
This video aims to illustrate the rotation around a virtual axis.
The mechanism is applied in case when placing a real rotation axis is impossible.
