When the X-axis units are set to degrees, the default Motion-Width = 360. This is the most common Motion-Width for most machine designs with rotating Cams.

When the X-axis units are 'seconds' or 'milliseconds', the Motion-Width is a function of the RPM parameter set in: MechDesigner - Machine Settings dialog > Cycles per Minute.

For example:

If Cycles / Minute = 60RPM the Motion-Width = 1second, or 1000milliseconds

If Cycles / Minute = 30RPM the Motion-Width = 2seconds, or 2000milliseconds


Default : each segment is the Flexible-Polynomial.

The Blend-Point settings for each motion-derivative of the default Flexible-Polynomial segments are equivalent to a 3-4-5 Polynomial.
