Research on Feature-Based Rapid Programming for Aircraft NC Parts
Feature-based programming is one of tendency of NC programming technology, and it is also an important portion for CAD/CAPP/CAM integration in the manufacturing enterprises. Because of selecting geometry repeatedly, random programming and bad integration during programming for the aircraft NC parts, the technology of rapid programming based on features is put forward in this paper. On the basis of features, the technology of feature recognition for aircraft NC parts and the algorithm of tool path generation based on features are integrated by taking XML as data transfer standard. With this method, the programming for aircraft NC parts can be realized quickly in the condition of CAD/CAPP/CAM integration. The system developed has been well applied to the programming for aircraft NC parts in an aircraft corporation.
