A CAD/CAM interface for computer-aided design of cams
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this thesis is to provide a complete package for the design and three dimensional modeling display of cams.
The software produced as a part of this work will operate as a module of CADAM to produce cam designs and enter the resulting cam as a CAD model and produce the graphical display of the cam.
In addition to the introductory material, this thesis is divided into four sections. The section on the graphics packages used in this thesis includes a brief history and capabilities of each of the packages. The second section details the procedure to be adopted in order to design a cam. The next section details ANICAM, the program that has been developed to incorporate the design and display procedure. The fourth section of this thesis contains recommendations for further work in this area.
The theoretical work in this project is a combination of original derivations and applications of the theory in the design literature.
