Range Variable Function

I am looking for a way to create a points file using a function that I can bring into a solid modeler that can be used to create a cam surface. As a simple example, for a circle, I would want an angle in the first column, an x coordinate R*sin(Theta) in the second column and a y coordinate R*cos(Theta) in the second column. I may want to add a fourth column with a function for the profile in the z direction. Thanks, Karl.

For a circular cam it's pretty easy.  This should do it.  Other cams are often piecewise, and I've found no simple solutions other than just stepping through each section.

This solution is good also. The augment function is very helpful. Thanks!
