how to create cam follower mechanism

follow the steps as below

  1. Step 1:

    Open a new assembly in creo

  2. Step 2:

    Create an axis between top and front plane

  3. Step 3:

    import the cam part that must have a modle axis and give pin connection

  4. Step 4:

    also the cam should have a mid sketch as a path curve

  5. Step 5:

    make a new perpendicular axis with the cams axis within the assembly file

  6. Step 6:

    select the follower note that it should have a datum point at the end

  7. Step 7:

    provide a slot connection between the entire curve on the cam and the datum point on the follower

  8. Step 8:

    provide the slider constrain between the perpendicular axis of the cam and the right assembly plane

  9. Step 9:

    all done now go for mechanism module from the application menu

  10. Step 10:

    select the servo motor and select the motion axis of the cam

  11. Step 11:

    go for profile tab and select velocity and give some value for the speed of rotation of the cam

  12. Step 12:

    now go for mechanism analysis and provide the time frame

  13. Step 13:

    and then select run and have a preview and click ok

  14. Step 14:

    now go for playback and select analysis and can see the speed ans then you can capture the video in mpeg format

  15. Step 15:

    to start the animation click on play button and you can adjust the speed also

  16. Step 16:
