    Cam-Follower Mating Issues With Cylindrical Cam

    Connor Hutchinson

      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.
