Constraints for Cam Follower (by MattE)
I'm using Solvespace to resolve mechanism geometry. Most of these are in 2D. Currently, I'm working on a cam profile that consists of tangent arcs. The follower for it is a roller.

Is there a way to constrain the roller such that it's always in contact with the cam and tangent to it? I can simulate this for a section (single arc) of the cam with a radial constraint to the centre of the roller, but can't figure out how to maintain tangency for the entire cam.
