In path mate can the vertex be fix and the path following the vertex?
I have attached a Video which gives you an understanding of mates that are used in the previously attached assembly.
Have you tried cam mate?
I'm new to solidworks. I've tried with cam mate but can't select my 3d sketch for cam path!!! Any suggestions?
As Deepak suggested, Cam Mate may work.
But I tried that mechanism using Profile Mate, and it sort of worked.
I have attached the files for your reference.
Hope it helps you.
Hi Sworks User
Thanks for the file. I will study it and try to replicate them to my drawing!! If I need some advice, can I ask for help?
Sworks User, thanks for sharing the files.
Mikel Cerveaux, path mate would like like shown by Sworks User. For cam mate you would have select the faces (like shown with red arrows in picture below)
For cam mate I can't select the faces you are showing!! Is this because I've use wrap deboss to create the cam?
Sworks User : I've been able to follow your file to make the path mate. The only things is that it's not rotating smoothly. It's like it jump form right to left abruptly!!! Any suggestions???
Thanks again for your help.
