Simulation Study for the Application of NURBS Interpolator

CNC공작기계에 NURBS 보간 알고리즘 적용을 위한 시뮬레이션 분석

  • Published : 2001.04.01


In CNC machining, demands on precision machining of free formed surface model are increasing. Most of the CAD/CAM systems provide the NURBS(Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline) interpolator. NURBS is defined with NURBS parameter by control point, weight value and knot value. This paper shows the realtime NURBS interpolation algorithms and compared with each other. One is based on the equal length of curve segments rather than equal increment of the parameter Δu. The other is to limit the interpolation error to any desired level by adjusting the feedrate considering the curvature of the shape and sampling time.
