An Overview of the Sheet Metal CNC Incremental Forming Toolpath Generation
The sheet metal CNC incremental forming is a flexible dieless forming technology that forms a sheet part by extruding the sheet metal point by point with the movement of forming tool along the forming path. The tool paths therefore have a great effect on the dimensional accuracy, surface quality and forming time. In this paper, an overview of the research status about the forming tool path generation for sheet metal CNC incremental forming is presented briefly.
