This research is directed to the process planning including the workpiece orientation, the rest-milling tool path generation and the orthogonal milling tool path generation for the Orthogonal Milling Process. Visibility maps are used to represent the feasible orientation of a surface feature so that the problem of workpiece orientation can be transformed into a geometric problem in the spherical domain and be analyzed in order to determine a feasible workpiece orientation.
