This paper presents a CAD-based approach for a new sheet metal forming technology that is Dieless Incremental Sheet Forming (DSF). This is established through the development of a program that allows a 3D model to be created with the use of a CAD Application Programming Interface (API) and an offline Slave Tool Path calculator based on a commercial CAM program’s output (Master Tool Path). The author will show how to apply parameterizations in the same model by utilizing the CAD API to overcome problems of a commercial post-processor and how to calculate Slave Tool Paths for different forming strategies.
