In general, CAM software that is used to generate a tool path of 5-axis controlled machining requires a complicated configuration setting. Therefore, in previous research, using the haptic device that can operate objects in a virtual space, we had developed a system for generating a tool path of intuitive 5-axis controlled machining. However, the previous system has a problem that may occur increase in cutting load in the generated tool path. Therefore, a function to limit cutting amount by using force sense was developed in this research, in order not to exceed the removal amount per unit time that was specified for the used ball end mill. It was confirmed that the improved system could generate a tool path that did not occur over-cutting.
