The Precise Design and Machining of Formed Milling Cutters Profile Based on Feature Modeling
When using the formed milling cutter to machine workpiece, the formed parts are cut by the milling with formed shape, so forms correspond to workpiece outline. In the 3D design software--SolidWorks, the relation of position of the workpiece profile and the milling each other is simulated. This project uses the function of 3D-shape of software to complete the 3D-entity-design of formed milling cutter profile and the drawing of rake face, thus designing the rake face profile directly, with the results of a great improvement on the design and machining quality and effectiveness.
