In this paper, a post-processor for the industrial robot FANUC R2000iC is introduced. Without going through the conventional teaching process, the post-processor regularly generates a rigorous robotic program from cutter location source data called CLS data. The CLS data are easily made through the main process of CAD/CAM, so that a promising data interface is realized between the industrial robot and CAD/CAM. The effectiveness is evaluated through simulations of trajectory following and also through an actual machining experiment of foamed polystyrene with a complex shape.
