The construction of a software tool for the design of a cam-follower system is discussed. Although the tool is built with a general purpose computer algebra system, it works as a black-box program. Using this case as an example, it is argued that it is representative of the general scheme: a constructor of mathematical software must-regardless of his own appreciation-pay much attention to the design of the user interface before the software is acceptable for mathematical laymen
