Study on Building and Simulation of the Polishing Path of Mold Based on MasterCAM


Article Preview

In order to improve the surface quality and machining efficiency for mold polishing. Digital automatic Polishing is a good method, MasterCAM is the software that often is used for CAM machining, path layout and building method are emphasized according to the MasterCam’s curved surface processing path setting method, and aimed at the different curved surface use different polishing path building method, at last, the rationality of the polishing path building was validated.
