Modelling a sliding rail

Hi,

I am trying to create a model of 2 structures. Structure 1 has a sliding rail attached to it and structure 2 slides along this rail. What is the best way to design this? Is adding a prismatic joint enough?

Please guide me. TIA

Re: Commercial license issues

Re: Commercial license issues

I am using a laser pointer, which sends a laser and a vision sensor as receiver (ideally there needs to be a reflective surface on the receiving end, but I don't know how to add that). But the...
