    Creating a simple cam using the cam toolbox

    Jacob Murray

      Hi all,

       

      I am trying to recreate this cam using the Solidworks cam toolbox feature but cannot seem to do it. My first issue is that it assumes the follower must be round, yet I need a flat faced follower. The second, more major issue is that I don't know what type of motion I need to input for each section. It is a very simple four arc cam, where each arc is a different radius and are each tangent to the next arc.

       

      Unfortunately for me I to have this finished within the next day so I am willing to pay someone say $30 via Paypal if the can recreate this profile using the cam toolbox and send me the settings they used. If anyone is able to do this it would be really appreciated!
