Movement question

I have an assembly that has a part I would like to be able to move using a driven constraint.  The part is a pin that I would like to follow an odd shaped slot.

How would I go about doing that?

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Rich

Transistional Constraint.

Angle or Offset Mate constraint to drive.

 

or

Use appropriate Dynamic Simulation joints if you have Inventor Professional.
