Cam Design Projects in an Advanced CAD Course for Mechanical Engineers


  • H. K. Ault Worcester Polytechnic Institute


The objective of this paper is to present applications of solid modeling aimed at modeling of complex geometries such as splines and blended surfaces in advanced CAD courses. These projects, in CAD-based Mechanical Engineering courses, are focused on the use of the CAD system to solve design problems for applications in machine design, namely the geometric and mechanical design of cam mechanisms.
