USyCaMs: A Software Package for the Interactive Synthesis of Cam Mechanisms. In the last twenty years or so, computer graphics has become a fundamental tool for the study of mechanisms, as made apparent by the software available in this area. We can cite IMP (Integrated Mechanisms Program) as one of the earliest software packages developed for the analysis of arbitrary linkages [7]. A few years later KINSIN III, a package meant for the synthesis of mechanisms, was introduced [6]. The graphical part of these early packages consisted essentially of 2-D lines. Further mechanism software packages, with improvements in their graphics, have been produced, such as LINCAGES [2], MINN-DWELL [5] and SIXPAQ [3]
