Barrel Cams and Globoidal Cams

Barrel and Globoidal Cams, of all types, can be designed in MechDesigner.

You can export all of the cam types directly to SOLIDWORKS®.

Note-Pencil-20 Skills needed for this Tutorial: Add Plane to Plane, Add Plane to Line.



It is possible to design Barrel Cams that have:

Cam-Followers that move inside a 'Groove-Cam' (see image to the left)


Cam-Followers that move along the two sides of a 'Rib-Cam'.

Rib-Cams take longer to model because you must use two cam-follower rollers.
