MechDesigner calculates cam forces and cam contact stresses
You can build and investigate your Cam Design very efficiently
You can very easily add cams to drive your mechanisms. Crucially, the designed motion can be applied to any part in the mechanism, not just the cam follower. MechDesigner will automatically keep the cam profile up to date no matter what you edit, be it; the motion, link lengths or shaft centers. If you add mass properties and springs and motors to your design you can also model Cam Forces and Cam Shear Stress between the Cam and the Cam Follower.
MechDesigner will calculate the Cam contact forces and maximum contact stresses. This is useful for determining fatigue lifetime.
