Micro-structured surfaces are widely used for functional applications in optics, biomedical and bionics, etc. However, conventional fast tool servo machining technology is not optimized to fabricate micro-structured surfaces that possessing sharp edges and stiff and fine features such as corner cubes, etc. This paper presents a Tool Servo Radial Chiseling (TSRC) Technology for ultra-precision machining of radiant pattern of 3D microstructures, which takes advantage of the chiseling and of the tool servo machining processes, and has the potential to produce more complex and diverse radiant patterns of 3D micro-structured surfaces. Experimental result shows that the TSRC method is able to generate radiant patterns of 3D rhombus microstructures with high accuracy.
