Cam-Follower Mating Issues With Cylindrical Cam

Question asked by Connor Hutchinson on Mar 27, 2015

I am modeling an old circular knitting machine, and I am having trouble with the cam-follower mate between the needles and the cam ring. It seems that the way I created the cam surface will not work for the mate.

 

Attached are the files I am working with.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.
