AbstractSpray forming is an emerging manufacturing process. The automated tool planning for this process is a nontrivial problem, especially for geometry-complicated parts consisting of multiple freeform surfaces. Existing tool planning approaches are not able to deal with this kind of compound surface. This paper proposes a tool-path planning approach which optimizes the tool motion performance and the thickness uniformity. There are two steps in this approach. The first step partitions the part surface into flat patches based on the topology and normal directions. The second step determines the tool movement patterns and the sweeping directions for each flat patch. Based on the above two steps, optimal tool paths can be calculated. Experimental tests are carried out on automotive body parts and the results validate the proposed approach. © 2005 IEEE.
