How to make a cylindrical cam-follower mechanism in pro engineer 5?
how can I make a mechanism of a cylindrical cam-follower in pro e? i have designed the cam shaft and the piston but am unable to develop the mechanism. i have attached the parts and the mechanism i want to develop.
You can't use a cam for this mechanism in ProE but a combination of gear function to correlate the linear motion of pistons and rotation of the shaft might do the job.
Are you looking for a Mechanism Dynamics simulation or just an animation to display how it works ?
I've projected a circle on the camshaft sliding surface to obtain the sliding trajectory of the piston contact sphere.
I've also created a point on the piston spherical area and used the curve and the point in in slot function in the assembly.
Here is one short movie with one piston.
