For die-cavity pocketing, contour-parallel machining is the most popular machining strategy. Two issues in generating contour-parallel tool paths for pocketing are: (1) a robust two-dimensional (2D)-curve offsetting algorithm; and (2) detecting and removing uncut regions. The 2D-curve offsetting solution has been widely studied, because it has so many… CONTINUE READING
