How to model rotational axis + linear axis
the mechanism wizard offers 1 linear axis + 1 rotational axis. 
However, I would like to model it the other way: 1 rotational axis + 1 linear axis. The robot is mounted on the linear axis. How can I model it?
Maybe it's possible to stack two single mechanisms into each other. But how to program then both axes? The program dialog offers only one field for value input besides the robot joints.

Hi Mike, what robot are you trying to model?
Aren't you looking for synchronized axes?

Thanks for the hint. Synchronized Axes could work.

What I like to do:
- Add a rotative axis
- Add a linear axis mounted on the rotative one
- Add a 6dof robot to the slider of the linear axis

- 8 dofs in total
- Robot can be rotated and linear aligned to a working position
I understand you were able to make it work?
