Abstract
A program to simulate the production process on the FAUST machine is described and changes required to enable the simulation on the WAGNER machine are indicated. Examples of performed simulations are presented, first on a spherical surface and then on a parabolic surface. Finally, it is shown that the tool cross-section is independent of the shape of the starting surface.
