Research about Numerical Control Machining of STL Files Based on Fagor CNC System
According to the situation that surface grid models are widely used, this article summarizes the research status of numerical control machining based on Triangle facets models, introduces the STL files in detail, expounds the process of machining STL files by using Pro/Toolmaker system, designs an independent post processor for generating NC code for Fagor machine, simulates the virtual machining process through Vericut software, verifies the actual machining process on Fagor three axis CNC milling machine. Proves the method of numerical control machining based on STL files is actually feasible for planar milling、cavity milling、profile milling, Realizes the machining of STL files based on Fagor CNC system.
