I need to make a slot for a cam follower with two curves 180 degrees apart
I tried a wrap but that is not right
Use the "Geometry pattern" option in the Mirror command. Without it, SOLIDWORKS is trying to solve the Wrap feature on the other side. That is why it errors with "Wrap failed, could not use contours from sketch"
change the radii value on the upper curved portion of the sketch to be 1.00 (inner radius +slot width), and it will give you good results. I attached a video of the model. you can see as the cam is rotated around the axis, the .500 gap is maintained and the curves cross at the axis.
I need two curved sections 180 degrees apart slot all the way around the shaft I tried to mirror it but it won't let me
I don't see a follower in your video.
I suspect Wrap will not return correct geometry.
thank you I got now
I suspect your cam isn't modeled correctly.
I stand corrected. I remodeled the cam using a radiate surface and thickened it to .500". This should give the correct results. Video and SW2015 models and assembly attached
