A new approach to the construction of a volume swept by the cutting tool is proposed for modeling multi-axis milling on milling robots or CNC machines. A tool is considered to take the form of an arbitrary body of revolution. The main difference of the proposed approach is to provide the possibility of direct construction of the BSP-dexel model, which, in turn, provides an effective modeling of the cutting process. Thus, it was possible to expand the scope of the BSP-dexel model by including the possibility to simulate arbitrary multi-axis machinning. To confirm the correctness of the proposed approach, a program implementation of the corresponding algorithms has been performed. Examples of modeling of multi-axis milling processing of real parts and data on time costs for such modeling are given. The results of the experiments prove the high efficiency of the proposed approach.
