Virtual animation for checking interference of globoidal cam


This article proposes some important tasks which are necessary in the modeling procedure of globoidal cams. These tasks are modeling and virtual animation of the globoidal cam mechanism for checking interference between components of the system. The acceptable cam is the one that has no interference between the cam and its rollers assuming that the clearance between cam surfaces and roller is zero or very small. Techniques of animation and checking interference of globoidal cam mechanism are performed in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0.
