To add a 2D-Cam, we must select two elements:
Part - which becomes the Cam
Profile/Extrusion - which becomes the Cam-Profile
•To model a Cam-Mechanism that is frequently used in packaging machines.
•To introduce Inverse-Kinematics.
➢Model a kinematic-chain with three Parts: a Part for the tooling, to which we join a Dyad that includes the Part for the Cam-Follower.
➢Add a Cam-Roller to the Cam-Follower Part.
➢Model a different kinematic-chain that is the Cam-Part. This is a rotating-Part, or a Cam-Shaft.
➢Add the 2D-Cam to the Cam-Part, and export the Cam-Coordinates to SolidWorks®.
Model a Rotating 2D-Cam
Add the Cam-Follower Mechanism
Add the Cam-Shaft
Add the 2D-Cam
➢Step 6A.7: Add the Polyline and Cam-Profile (not needed to get Cam-Coordinates)
Export the Cam-Data
