How to create a cam profile from trace point?

Hi everyone,

I have a question just like i mentioned at the title. I have a radial oscillating cam mechanism (the cam profile has not been created, only a disk rotates with constant velocity) engaging to a four-bar linkage, after simulating in Solidworks Motion I got the trace point of the roller by gave the output link of four-bar linkage a motion curve (angle - time relationship). But the thing I want to know here is the cam profile. I have tried generating the cam profile by Camtrax64 but it seems no help. So is there any idea?

Thanks in advance.
