In Response To 'Re: Re: A Rolling Wheel'
---------
To the coordinates of each part you need to add {vel * tt, 0}, where vel is the "velocity" of the wheel, thinking of tt as the time. Here the velocity would be

vel = - radius = -1.

You will also have to do something like set the option PlotRange to be big enough to contain the whole track. This is what is done in the Demonstration examples and "Mathematica in Action."

I hope that helps.
