Paper Abstract

The 3-dimensional (3D) graphics realtime simulation is one of the difficult techniques in computer numerical control (CNC) machining. This paper presents the data structure representing the geometric volume. Based on the specification of the machining processes and the property of orthographic projection, we develop the local graphics display method for the dynamic graphics, adopting the front-to-back visible-surface determination algorithm. As a result, we realize the realtime 3D simulation in the industry controlled computer.
