Introduction to tool-path generation methods
As an introduction to Part Two, this chapter provides a comprehensive review of the ‘conventional’ tool-path generation methods and proposes a new tool-path generation method called the ‘C-space method’. The conventional methods to be covered in this chapter are isoparametric methods, Cartesian methods and APT-type methods. In this book, the C-space method will be exclusively used in generating 3-axis NC tool-paths.
