Solid Modeling of Spatial Cam with Oscillation Roller Follower
Though spatial cam has been widely used in various fields of machinery and equipment ,but it is seldom used in continuously variable transmission situation. So firstly the working principle of spatial cam for CVT is introduced, and then equations of the pitch curve and cam contour are derived .In order to get the required dimensions and parameters of spatial cam during three dimensional modeling, program is developed with programming software Mathcad and the corresponding programming flow chart is listed out. And the running results of the Mathcad program and features of spatial cam in Pro/E are correlated to realize solid modeling, at last an example is given to demonstrate the feasibility and flexiblity of this method.
