Pulley Mechanism Right Angle Drive

This example models a pulley mechanism that takes a torque applied to a winch and transmits it to a pulley rotated at 90 degrees to that winch. This example uses blocks from the Simscape Multibody Belts and Cables library to model a pulley mechanism that is not all in a single plane.

The plot below shows the torque applied to the winch and the speed of the winch. Note that for the first second, no torque is applied to the winch, but the load still moves due to gravity.
