Export a Cam as a Smooth Curve to CAD

Export a Cam as 'smooth'

Note: This topic was written before Save as Biarcs was developed for Cams. Biarcs are tangent and thus very smooth.

Also, you can use the Save as icon to save the cam as a STEP file.

In MechDesigner, you can also save a cam as a DXF File.

The DXF is intended for CNC machines that do not have a spline option, or cannot open the STEP file format.
