camshaft design using MechDesigner

Cam designs often use conjugate cams for improved performance

While MechDesigner software is particularly suited to Packaging Machine design, it can also be used to design Camshafts for engines. We would normally recommend that you use specialist software for the design of engine camshaft because there are special requirements for valve timing cams.  Nevertheless, if you can specify your motion using our motion design software, then why not. Conjugate cams have recently been developed for engine valve motion control and MechDesigner with MotionDesigner is ideally suited to design this type of camshaft.
