F.A.Q. - CamTrax(64)
Will CamTrax64 run a a win32 machine?
Yes, CamTrax64 is compiled to run on either win32 or win64. The win32 version can run on both win32 and win64 but the win64 version can only run on win64 operating systems.
Do you have any recommendations for mating a cam follower to a barrel cam path surface?
Yes, first use the single surface option when creating the cam in CAD. Create a very narrow surface on the outside of the cam follower, about 0.010" wide. Mate the cam so it can spin freely on its axis. Mate the cam follower so it can move freely only in the direction of travel. Then add a tangent mate between the narrow cam follower surface and a surface on the cam path.
