This paper develops a three dimensional (3D) simulation system with QT platform and OpenGL 3D library by adopting the driver and Aerotech's linear motor as hardware platform and INtime and A3200 controller as the software platform. The system uses numerical control (NC) code syntax checking module to test the NC code syntax and applies 3D simulation module to display the actual machining process. The interference and collision detection module is built in this system to detect the problem during the actual processing. The system therefore contributes to avoiding the trial and tests for the ultra-precision machining process and improving the machining efficiency as well as reducing the loss of ultra-precision components of machine tool due to the collision.
