A geometric method for optimal multi-cutter selection in 5-axis finish cut of sculptured surfaces

Abstract

This paper presents an optimization method for multiple cutter selection in 5-axis sculptured surface finish cut. Compared to machining using a single cutter, the application of multiple cutters can shorten the cutting time. In our early work, an algorithm has been developed to select the largest feasible cutter to finish the whole of a given sculptured… (More)
