The paper presents a new tool-path generating approach for layer-based micro-EDM (electro discharge machining) milling. The material removal volumes are represented by a sequence of two-dimensional slices taking into account the specific requirements of three-dimensional micro-EDM milling. The proposed approach allows electrode wear to be compensated for by varying the layer thickness. The capabilities of the developed computer aided manufacture (CAM) system have been verified experimentally.
