Fixed cam mechanism 5

The orange cam of contact radius R is fixed. The green follower of contact radius r has planar motion. If R = 2r and the axis of the contact cylindrical surface of the fixed cam intersects sliding axis of the blue slider (case of Cardano circles), the green follower rolls without sliding on the fixed cam.
