Examine the motion of a catapult as it is loaded and throws a projectile. Add solid bodies contact, add a spring and apply friction. Determine torque required to rotate the crank and load the catapult. Determine the displacement of the loading spring. Study the effect of contact friction on the motion of the projectile.
Generate a cam profile based on an input follower displacement from a data set. Define a motion of a follower using Data Points. Generate a cam profile using Trace Path. Verify the generated cam profile.
