The mathematical modeling and detailed algorithms are derived in this paper
to describe the geometrical shape of end mill cutters for multi-axis milling machining.
Details of the geometry analysis techniques are presented to understand the effective
cutting shape. Three types of cutters are taken in the present paper. Finally, the
procedures of finding the instantaneous cutting profile and local geometry analysis are
discussed. The techniques presented in this paper can be used to eliminate errors of
milling tool path generation in the area of simultaneous multi-axis NC complex surface
machining.
