Hi, I created a cam using the design accelerator and created an assembly using it, now it has come around to manufacturing it and I can't dimension the cam at all and I need to get it made.

Does anyone have any idea how how I can do this?

Many thanks

You should have the Displacement Diagram from the DA.

I can find the Displacement graph and have tried saving the data and when I opened the notepad pad files it was a lot of numbers that I couldnt make any sense of.I also tried to export the template and got much the same result.

Could you please explain how I can use this to get the cam made? I have little experience with cams and although I have been using inventor for a few years I am by no means an expert.

Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated


Best regards
