YP Geneva Mechanism can also draw the tangential velocity of both parts.
When you launch YP Geneva Mechanism, the main window is displayed: it shows a Geneva mechanism with 6 slots. Use the animation menu to start the animation. With the "Options" menu, you can change the number of slots. This menu also allows to show graphs, vectors or a triangle describing how the angles change during the motion.
