This paper presents the results of the development of Virtual Computer Numerical Control Milling Machine Tool (VCNC-MMT) with cutting force models for web-based education and learning. This research is divided into five parts: 1) Virtual modeling of the machine parts, work-piece, cutting tools, and fixtures. 2) Assembly of the virtual components and assignment of the kinematics to the VCNC-MMT. 3) Development of virtual controller and offline simulation of machining process. 4) Implementation of the VCNC-MMT and simulation on the internet using X3D modeling language for long distance education, learning and training. 5) Development of the mechanistic cutting force models and incorporation with the VCNC-MMT. Mechanistic cutting force models for helical end mills with corner radius has been completed and simulated using MATLAB.
