On initialization of milling paths for 5-axis flank CNC machining of free-form surfaces with general milling tools
(Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD, Elsevier), 2019-03-27)
We propose a path-planning algorithm for 5-axis flank CNC machining with general tools of varying curvature. Our approach generalizes the initialization strategy introduced for conical tools [Bo et al., 2017] to arbitrary ...
Highly-accurate 5-axis flank CNC machining with conical tools
(The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, 2018-04)
A new method for $5$-axis flank computer numerically controlled (CNC) machining using a predefined set of tappered ball-end-mill tools (aka conical) cutters is proposed. The space of lines that admit tangential motion of ...
Automatic fitting of conical envelopes to free-form surfaces for flank CNC machining
(Computer Aided Design, 2017-10)
We propose a new algorithm to detect patches of free-form surfaces that can be well approximated by envelopes of a rotational cone under a rigid body motion. These conical envelopes are a preferable choice from the ...
Towards efficient 5-axis flank CNC machining of free-form surfaces via fitting envelopes of surfaces of revolution
(Computer-Aided Design, 2016-06-30)
We introduce a new method that approximates free-form surfaces by envelopes of one-parameter motions of surfaces of revolution. In the context of 5-axis computer numerically controlled (CNC) machining, we propose a flank ...
