Matrix geometry techniques are applied to predicting three-dimensional cutting forces. In the present model a specific cutting plane is located and two-dimensional metal cutting theory is applied. Force predictions in this plane are then matrix transformed to three orthogonal forces acting on the cutting tool. Experimental results show the matrix model accurately predicts three-dimensional cutting forces in turning of long slender workpieces. Experimental results are also compared to other analytical models described in the literature.
