The classical computer numerical control (CNC) machine is widely used for mold making in various industries. However, while improving the process, it has a negative effect on production quality and worker safety. As a result, the complaints of workers have increased and production quality has decreased. Therefore, we found optimizing cutting conditions to mold industrials for cutting conditions commonly used. However, the problem is the insert tool geometric modeling. In this study, the modeling of an insert tool was performed using the Solidworks program. The insert tool model was imported into the analysis application AdvantEdge, which predicted cutting forces, tool stress, and temperature.
