...Dongdong Zhang; Pinghai Yang; Xiaoping Qian This paper presents an approach for generating curvature-adaptive finishing tool paths with bounded error directly from massive point data in three-axis computer numerical control (CNC) milling. This approach uses the moving least-squares (MLS) surface...

... for improving a geometrically feasible tool-path trajectory based on quantifiable process metrics is developed. Two specific measures of toolpath quality are incorporated into the iterative improvement algorithm: instantaneous path curvature and instantaneous cutter engagement. These metrics are motivated...
