ABSTRACT
This term paper is prepared to partially fulfill a requirement of graduate studies program in industrial engineering for the course „FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS‟. The term paper studies on NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines) curve Mathematical Representation and NURBS based Interpolations Techniques for CNC programming.
Because of its importance in both high-speed machining and tool-path generation, approximating a contour by NURBS format is a potential function in CAD/CAM/CNC systems. NURBS curve is one of the most commonly used tools in CAD systems and geometric modeling for its various specialties, which mean that its shape is locally adjustable as well as its continuity order and it, can represent a conic curve precisely.
Over the recent years, different curves and surface representation forms have been proposed. Currently, B-Splines and NURBS (Non-Uniform B-Splines ) are the most popular mathematical forms. NURBS offer a unified mathematical form not only for representation of free-form curves and surfaces but also for precise representation of close form shapes such as lines, conics, quadrics and surfaces of revolution.
In the following sections, there is an introduction, a detail analysis of NURBS mathematical representation and NURBS base interpolations techniques discussed. Finally the study provides a conclusion.
