For those interested in the mathematical equations of cam profile design this post is for you. I remember searching the internet for information on cam profile design and only being able to find information on the mathematics involved. This was not really what I was interested in so I started "Cam Talk" to help others interested in cam profile design and pass on more practical knowledge. As I have said many times before the software does the math for you. It does not teach anything about cam profile designs. That information seems to be very difficult to find.
These videos get into the math involved in designing a cam profile. I thought the instructor did an excellent job of presenting this. Here is a link to the beginning of the series to get you started. This stuff is not that interesting to me and I am certainly no mathematician but it is part of the process. Like I said, that's what the software does. Some do enjoy the math so this is for you.
