In the model below, imagine that you want the large rotation to swing only in the plane of the chain support (the Y-Z plane). The two pipes should move freely relative to each other in the axial direction (the X-Y plane). To do this, use three restraints with connecting nodes. The first restraint is the large rotation rod with its connecting nodes. In turn, the first restraint is connected to the second and third linear restraints, allowing only Y-Z interaction between the large rotation rod connecting node and the top pipe node.
