Abstract:

This paper describes the computer-aided design and manufacture of a prototype core model for a new protective glove. The computer system and software are described as are the design processes in geometry and CNC machining. The construction of sculptured surfaces, machine tool paths and postprocessing software for the shape are laid out and the problems of manufacture of complex geometric parts analysed. The final product was machined on a MatsuuraFanuc computer-numerical control machine and controller.
