Curve fitting is an important preliminary work for data compression and path interpolator in numerical control (NC). The paper gives a simple conic spline approximation algorithm for G01 code. The algorithm is mainly formed by three steps: divide the G01 code to subsets by discrete curvature detection, find the polygon line segment approximation for each subset within a given error and finally, fit each polygon line segment approximation with a conic Bezier spline. Naturally, B-spline curve can be obtained by proper knots selection. The algorithm is designed straightforward and efficient without solving any global equation system or optimal problem. It is complete with the selection of curve's weight. To design the curve more suitable for NC, we present an interval for the weight selection and the error is then computed.
