Software Simulation of Numerically Controlled
The field of numerically controlled (NC) machining has long been interested with predicting and measuring the errors in machining. Creating a simulation of NC machining is one way of achieving this. This thesis presents one such implementation of an NC simulation. It also runs a number of numerical and physical tests to verify the simulation?s correctness. The numerical tests show that the simulator work correctly as well as providing guide lines for appropriate simulation parameters. The physical tests show that the results of the simulation match the results of real NC machines. It is hoped that this thesis can provide a guide for the creation of machining simulators and their verification.
