Sampling Based Assessment of the Free-Form Milling Strategies
In this paper, author introduce common needs of increasing surface quality in tool making, a sort of products manufactured by free form milling technology. Principles of the free-form surface decomposition into measurable samples are presented and that is a method of combining CAD modeling with design of sampling objects. Sampling objects are classed both according to their measurability and applied milling strategy. Authors verify experimentally their sampling approach for three milling strategies applied in surface finishing operations while free-form surfaces are investigated in terms of their signed radii. Verification of proposed approach is based on statistical distribution of the measured surface roughness data.
