As an important mechanism with intermittent motion, the globoidal indexing cam is always a research hot in the mechanical fields. The working profile of globoidal indexing cam is extremely complicated and undevelopable, which make it quite difficult to be protracted by the conventional drafting method. Aiming at this problem, the working curvilinear equation of the intermittent motion of an indexing cam is derived based on the RPY (Roll-Pitch-Yaw) coordinate transformation method. The 3D model based on the curvilinear equation is built by the Creo2.0 modeling software. The virtual prototype is established based on the ADAMS software, while the kinematics simulation is implemented. The success of virtual simulation verifies the correctness of curvilinear equation. The numerical results, presented and discussed in the paper, indicate that the proposed model is feasible to foresee the kinematic behaviour of an actual system.
