How to design the mechanism of lathe machine and animate it in Solidworks?

I want to design the power transmission process in lathe machine (motor transmit power to spindle and cross slide). I don't know the mechanism and gearbox system in lathe machine (how spindle rotate and cross slide moves horizontally with the same motor). So, I don't understand how to start to design a complete lathe machine mechanism and animate it in Solidworks. Please help me.
