The aim of this study is to realize the fast and accurate design and manufacture of spatial CAM by introducing CAD/CAM system. By using Pro/ENGINEER software widely used in CAD/CAM system, the follower displacement curve is quickly and accurately drawn according to the curve equation of the motion specification of the spatial CAM follower, and the 3D model of the spatial CAM is created according to the curve by Pro/Feature module. Then, the contour surface quality of the spatial CAM is checked by surface analysis, and the detection results are fed back to the modeling design of the spatial CAM. After analyzing the machining theory of the spatial CAM, according to the theory and the modeling completed in the Pro/Manufacture module, the NC machining code of the spatial CAM is automatically programmed. Based on the feedback data of the surface inspection information, the design and manufacturing process of the spatial CAM are continuously optimized. Therefore, the created contour surface has high precision, excellent kinematic and dynamic characteristics. This research provides an effective method and scheme for the automatic design and manufacture of space CAM.
