MULTI-AXIS TOOL MOTIONS AND A SPECTRUM OF MILLING TOOL GEOMETRICS WILL BE ACCOMMODATED. IN ADDITION, AN AUTOMATED VERIFICATION CAPABILITY WILL BE CREATED. THESE PROGRAMS ARE FEASIBLE DUETO CERTAIN SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE PROPOSED SOLID MODEL SYSTEM, PARTICULARLY A CAPABILITY FOR VERY FAST BOOLEAN OPERATIONS.
