Hi All

How do we define the profile of a cam for example , that might be a bspline , by importing points ? and what is the type of the file that ADAMS can read from ? In ADAMS 2014, I dont see this command , and how should I order the points in that file ?

RE: what is the file type to define a profile by points?

I suggest you look in the help files, or even the tutorials. I suspect that ADAMS will need the points in order of increasing X (the first column). Frankly this forum isn't really aimed at getting complete noobs off the ground, so don't be surprised if some of your questions go unanswered. MSC offers a variety of support options.

Cheers
