- Presented in this paper is a tool path generation procedure for three-dimensional profile curve machining on three-axis machines, which is essential for making dies of automotive press panels. While sculptured surface machining has received a significant amount of attention, there has been very little work on profile curve machining. The most distinctive feature of profile curve machining is that the machine operator determines the exact cutter radius at the stage of numerical control (NC) machining. For this reason, profile curve machining usually makes use of the cutter radius compensation functionality of an NC controller. In this paper, four technological requirements for the profile curve machining are identified: (1) maintaining a constant machining width; (2) avoiding controller alarms; (3) avoiding unbalanced cutter wear; and (4) retaining down-milling. To satisfy these requirements, a tool path generation procedure is proposed, implemented and tested.
