Straight line drawing mechanism 3b

It is an isosceles slider-crank mechanism.

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

The small circle rolls inside the large fixed circle of 2r radius.

They are Cardano circles.
