A wrapping cam mechanism consists of a cam wrapped by a belt or flexible band. An
analytical method for synthesizing wrapping cam mechanisms has recently been developed.
This thesis extends the previous work and describes the development of an interactive
wrapping cam synthesis package based on analytical methods. The software presented in
this thesis generates cam profiles for eight configurations of wrapping cam-pulley or
wrapping cam-sprocket mechanisms. This software package has a graphical user interface
to give intuitive interactions. The modularity of the software package increases the
flexibility for future program extension. This thesis also discusses the extended synthesis
methods for a wrapping cam-link mechanism.
