      i need to design a radial cam with oscillatiing follower .

      the follower should rise with an angular deflction of 120 degrees

      how should i go about this in solidworks 2010 cam toolbox...

      my second question is..will the drawing i make in solidworks be enough to give to the manufacturer to fabricate this cam?...

      i have used two methods to make cam in solidworks.one using camtrax and the second utilising the toolbox addon in solidworks.but i am having problem dimensioning it because it want to send this drawing to the manufacturer for fabrication.

      i have attached files for both methods.please help.

      for the file(dimennsion1)...cam made using camtrax..PROBLEM: how to convert the selected entities into arcs so that I can dimension the arcs similar to what I have done to two arcs as show in the pictures…having dimensioned arcs makes it easy for the manufacturer to come up with a realistic model.have no prolems with the rest of the two views

      second is the camtoolbox cam..having problems dimensioning the arcs...but it dimensions for me the horizontal and vertical ordinates.
