Interactive Graphics in Data Processing: Cam design on a graphics console

by J. M. Lafuente
This paper describes a generalized program for the analysis and design of plate cam and follower mechanisms using a graphic display console. The experimental program was developed to study the use of interactive graphics systems for solving mechanical design problems. The program can handle almost all types of plate cam and follower mechanisms. A wide selection of motion curves permits the designer to specify any desired motion of a point of interest by synthesizing several curves into a displacement diagram.
