Designing a Snail Drop CAM

Hey everyone,

I'm noticing a lot more FRC teams have been using snail cams for shooters and other continually reloading mechanisms, but I can't think of any ways of making a progressive CAM in Creo. Any ideas? I'm talking about these:http://www.technologystudent.com/images5/snlcam3.gif

Also try a Google search for "Creo Cam Follower". There are a lot of videos on YouTube for this.

Hi Patrick,

I found something on grabcad that might be useful to you. While it's not exactly a snail cam, it could be easily modified to be.

The files that you download from the model are a little old so I had to do some cleaning up. I've attached the working files.
