Engineering - Mechanism Models
All of the models shown below were designed as demonstration models. Bearing that in mind, they could be used as projects for students, but some modifications might be necessary.
Below you will find a picture of the model, a brief description and a link which will provide you with the shown image, Solidworks model, (including all parts modeled), Solidworks Drawings of each part, PDFs of the Solidworks Drawings and a text file with the fasteners required.
An easy enough project to manufacture. The download contains a number of simple cams to replace the egg cam shown. At some stage I'll add plans for a roller and flat follower, but at the minute there is only a point follower.
Making the wheel can be tricky here. One metod is to use a milling machine to cut the slots. Alternativly cut the sectors seperatly and glue them in position.
A nice model showing an alternative method of converting circular motion to reciprocating motion.
