As compared with other cutting types, the ball end milling process causes a complexity in cutting system and a falling-off of machinability. In order to increase the productivity and efficiency in th NC machining of sculptured surfaces, this study carried out the qualitative linearized evaluation about the ball end milling system and applied their practical expressions to the technological processor at the cutter path planning stage. The evaluated expressions were proved to be adequate for practical use from an accuracy point of view and the estimation models were applied to sculptured surface machining processes for finding variable machining conditions. Consequently, it was recognized that variable machining conditions bring about the dispersion of force system and the reduction of machining time by more than 50%.
