How to constrain polygon in square?

Until now I didn't find a way. The tree edges of the polygon should be moving along the edges of the internal square hole.

Perhaps another task for JD's students. Files are 2014, but STEP can be made easily.

Not quite like that, but similar. Meanwhile I got it. Movement can be done from 0 to 1080 deg for angle Drive

Thanks for looking, admaiora.

Seems not so easy. Only two points out of three can move along the square at the same time. If one of them crosses a symmetry plane of the square, then the other one needs to loose contact, and the free point begins to move on the square's edge.

Is this the movement you intend?
