  author={J. S. Hwang},
  journal={Computer-Aided Design},
A method & presented for generating interference-free tool paths from parametric compound surfaces. A parametric compound surface & a surface that cons&ts of parametric surface elements. The method & largely composed of two steps: points are obtained from a compound surface to be converted into a triangular polyhedron," tool paths are then generated from the polyhedron. An efficient algorithm & used in the calculation of cutter-location data, and planar tool paths, which are suitable for metal… CONTINUE READING
