Straight line drawing mechanism 3a

It is an isosceles slider-crank mechanism.

Every point of the small magenta circle (fixed with the conrod and its radius is equal to the conrod length) traces a straight line (in green).

The small magenta circle rolls inside the large fixed magenta circle. They are Cardano circles.
