The tool swept volume has been generally applied in multi-axis NC machining simulation and verification. For the characteristic and actual condition, a general cutter model was built, and based on that a new method to simulate the tool swept volume of multi-axis milling was represented. The geometric model of cutter is translated to tool sphere with Guass Mapping, and the tangency function of tool vector was obtained. Combining the tool sphere and tangent function above, the enveloping characteristic line of tool could be acquired. Then the tool swept volume model was built. This paper also solves the self intersection of tool swept volume. Finally the simulation model verifies the validity of this method.
