Hi Art,
I see Vexx has a golden spiral generator . I need an Archimede s Spiral for a cam in a project. Is that on the horizon?
While I am here I was looking at cam design in general with constant speed, constant accelerat ion et al. So far I have not found any informati on on generatin g them on the net. Could they be a subspecie s of spirals?

Hi Steve:

   I didn't add for that in the spirals, but will look at adding a selection for it
in that dialog.

I realise this thread is over a year old now, but I have a similar requireme nt for a nice, smooth-moving cam for an electro-mechanical clock design I'm working on. The option to easily design a cam including a smooth increase/decrease of accelerat ion which I can then copy out to my CNC router for cutting would be brilliant . Quite how many derivativ es of position (velocity, accelerar ion, jerk, snap, crackle, pop) Art decides are enough to fire his imaginati on are not for me to decide  Wink

Kit:

    Ill give it some research. I've just had a large crash here and am still in the end
stages of rebuildin g. Im almost there and have nothing committed to other than research
for a couple of months to determine what I feel like doing next. Cams and Worms are under
considera tion.
