Hi @MDyke 

Hi @Johnson_BigMatt 

 

 

but could the "Solid Sweep" not help here?

You move the tool (outside roller) around the cam and remove everything what should not be there.

 

 

regards
Wolfgang

I would also recommend posting the question on the Engineering Tips forum in the Mechanical Engineering General Discussion group.  There are some other cam topics in it so there are some users that might be able to help there as well.

Hi hawcad,
I've been trying the Solid Sweep and I'm not getting the expected results. It seems like it's going to work until reality sets in. Thanks though, that's a new command for me.

IIRC The problem with Solid Sweep is that the guide edge is followed by the "cutter"  regardless of the cutter's position...   I have not been able to find a way to do a Solid Sweep with an offset perse'   ( i may be mistaken?)

Hi kjoiner,
I'm unable to find this group? I'd like to see the other cam topics also, since we deal with a lot of cams. Could you post a link maybe?
Thanks,
Maia

Guys,

 

This is a good challenge and everybody has given his ideas to solutions. There are some ways (@Johnson_BigMatt@hawcad) but the best method is the mixed way. We need for the path what we can use to solid sweep cutting. The path is coming from DDM. Sweet, very sweet future! Smiley Wink

 

Here is a video about steps:

Hi @Imics ,

This is an interesting solution. Thank you for working thru it. I'll be looking into DDM for this purpose.

 

Hi @kjoiner@Johnson_BigMatt@hawcad, & @Imics,

I really appreciate your help on this project. I've been working on a few more of these cams, just for this job, and will be utilizing your ideas.

Many Thanks!

Maia

@MDyke    the solution shown by @Imics  is certainly the best option.  As I eluded to DDM is really the best option for this... 

 

As always, @Imics  bringing out the big guns!

It seems like you have your solution but I had to try this macro I wrote a while back.

It takes a point and drives it through a motion driven from a variable to create a curve.

The cam and the follower each have a Rigid Set relationship applied so the behave as a unit.

It's wicked fun.
