i will attach my files here.. the files contain a cam and a shaft with a roller (follower). somebody please suggest me a way to mate the cam and the follower together..
let me explain the desired motion
the cam has a splined profile..
then there is a shaft to which a follower is connected.. the follower touches tangentially the splined face of the cam .. the follower is connected with the shaft and hence the shaft moves left to right or vice versa...
please help
warm regards
pratim
