RE:NURBS blend curve
Hi Dana.  Hope you are doing well.

On the CDE add-in "tools" there is a cam generation function.  It is at the bottom of the "other" fly-out menu.

Typically you would graph the angle to displacement desired.  Plotting the points radially would define the cam.  A spline through those points is the cam outline.  A spline is the lowest tension geometry through any sets of points.

The CDE function "create cam function" appears to be doing just that but more automated.

Hope this helps!

All the best,
