14.14 THREE-DIMENSIONAL CUTTER COMPENSATION
The three-dimensional cutter compensation function is used with
machines that can control the direction of tool axis movement by using
rotation axes (such as the B- and C-axes). This function performs
cutter compensation by calculating a tool vector from the positions of
the rotation axes, then calculating a compensation vector in a plane
(compensation plane) that is perpendicular to the tool vector.
There are two types of cutter compensation : Tool side compensation
and leading edge compensation. Which is used depends on the type of
machining.
