The Construction of Conforming-to-shape Truss Lattice Structures via 3D Sphere Packing
Truss lattices are common in a wide variety of engineering applications, due to their high ratio of strength versus relative density. They are used both as the interior support for other structures, and as structures on ...
Manufacturing of screw rotors via 5-axis double-flank CNC machining
We investigate a recently introduced methodology for 5-axis flank computer numerically controlled (CNC) machining, called double-flank milling . We show that screw rotors are well suited for this manufacturing approach ...
Characterizing envelopes of moving rotational cones and applications in CNC machining
Motivated by applications in CNC machining, we provide a characterization of surfaces which are enveloped by a one-parametric family of congruent rotational cones. As limit cases, we also address ruled surfaces and their ...

Reparameterization of ruled surfaces: toward generating smooth jerk-minimized toolpaths for multi-axis flank CNC milling
This paper presents a novel jerk minimization algorithm in the context of multi-axis flank CNC machining. The toolpath of the milling axis in a flank milling process, a ruled surface, is reparameterized by a B-spline ...
Definition of tailor made cutting tools for machining of complex surfaces based on final surface shape
In this work a design methodology to define the best geometry of cutting tool for complex surfaces is defined, being based on the final part surface geometry. The manufacture of components with tailor made shaped tools, ...
