This paper presents a generic methodology for tool path generation for an arbitrary component that can be formed by single point incremental forming (SPIF) to obtain required geometrical accuracy. Adaptive slicing concepts used in layered manufacturing have been modified and used for generating tool path for SPIF. Experiments and FEA have been carried out to study the effectiveness of the proposed methodology. Results indicate that the proposed methodology enhances the accuracy achievable in SPIF.
