I need help to design and animate a cylindrical cam , and have the design and assembly but the animation story can not find how to do to validate the movement .
Model a Barrel Cam in SolidWorks - YouTube
I had already seen this video tutorial , but I already have modeled parts and assembly done , I need to know how to make the simulation of the movement of the cam with four followers , when between a follower coming off the other.
I don't think the video shows correct technique.
I didn't watch it carefully - but I will wager that it is not correct.
it is good for the video example but what he is looking is how to animate four cam follower in a one barrel cam
I agree... Alin Vargatu you might want to take a look at some of Mr. Mather's previous posts... A deboss doesn't create the correct side wall geometry for a barrel cam. Your video shows some good techniques to keep in the modeler's toolkit, but don't result in accurate barrel cam geometry.
Hi Daniel, If you create a Basic motion study with motor and solid contact, the animation should not be to difficult to achieve. Maybe you want to share the model with us so we can give it a go!
