This paper presents a model of the cut geometry in Jive-axis milling. This allows the establishment of a better model of cutting force to account for the influence of the tool orientation. The formulation of the width and the thickness of the cut were derived and implemented in a computer simulation. The results of simulations were verified experimentally and a good agreement was obtained. The result shows the importance of including the influence of the tool orientation in the cut cross-section calculation.
