This paper presents the comparison of high-speed milling and heavy milling by using the visual chart approach. To search for more efficient cutting process for 2.5D parts, an interactive process planning and analyzing method is introduced. Geometries to be machined are decomposed into combinations of machining features. Then, cutting strategies are interpreted into constraints on cutting conditions and cutting performance. Several combinations of machining features are examined based on the evaluation of machining time in the charts.
