Barrel cam assembly relationship

assembly relationships

Barrel cam assembly relationship

Now you can use the Cam command to easily model a barrel cam. The cam relationship allows follower geometry to follow chained curves, such as sketch geometry wrapped around a cylinder.
Characteristics of the chain of curves geometry are:

  • Can be open or closed.

  • Can be a 3D path and contain splines, arcs, etc.

  • The curve must be tangent continuous.

  • The edges can be from a sketch, design body, construction curve, or similar. (Assembly sketch is also supported for a 2D Cam.)
Geometric characteristics of the follower surfaces are:

  • Cylinders

  • Torii

  • Spheres (tangent to curve chain)

  • The face can be from the design body or any construction body.
