16 December 1976 Theoretical Tool Movement Required To Diamond Turn An Off-Axis Paraboloid On Axis

Abstract
Current techniques for manufacturing off-axis paraboloids are both expensive and insufficiently accurate. An alternative method, turning the workpiece about its axis on a diamond-turning machine, is presented, and the equations describing the necessary tool movement are derived. A discussion of a particular case suggests that the proposed technique is feasible.
