Abstract: In this paper, a novel method is proposed to generate optimal 5-axis finish tool-paths regarding joint movements and machining efficiency. A modified genetic algorithm is used to search for the optimal posture sequence along a tool-path while interference avoidance and surface finish quality act as constraints. Case studies are then provided to prove the effectiveness of the algorithm. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications.
