This paper proposes a novel pre-processing method for industrial robotic
CNC-milling. The method targets a hybrid machining process, in which the
main bulk of material is removed through robotic hot or abrasive wire cutting,
after which regular CNC-machining is employed for removal of the remaining
material volume. Hereby, the roughing process is significantly sped up, reducing
overall machining time. We compare our method to the convex hull and remove
between 5% and 75% more material; on most models we obtain a 50%
improvement. Our method ensures that no overcutting happens and that the
result is cuttable by wire cutting.
