Dear list

Can anyone suggest a publisher who would be prepared to publish a book
detailing the algorithms and techniques for the generation of milling cutter
paths. The book would have descriptions of the techniques for typical
milling operations such as

Generation of area clearance passes
Detection and generation of rest know the kind of thing.

It would also have examples of the code used to produce these paths.

Best regards
