A model reconstruction and CNC tool path generation of broken blades was proposed for the conditions that damage regions locatesd on the leading/trailing edges and on the tips. Measured data points were sorted, adjusted, and then utilized to construct sectional spline curves. The section curve was smoothed based on the theory of minimized energy, a method of aligning the sectional curves according to the curvatures was proposed. A model reconstruction method based on the lofting strategy was presented for the edge broken blades and the tip broken blades. The damaged regions were extracted, based on which the algorithm for generating zigzag tool path and the spiral tool path was given for CNC machining. Preliminary simulation results reveal that the proposed method guarantees the smoothness of the reconstructed surfaces and the approximation to the blade's real size. The feasibility of the proposed tool path generation method was testifiecl.
