A machining process is one of the most common techniques used to remove material in order to create a final product. Most studies on mechanisms of cutting are performed under the assumption that the studied material is isotropic, homogeneous and continuous. One important feature of material- its anisotropyis linked to its crystallographic nature, which is usually ignored in machining studies. A crystallographic orientation of a workpiece material exerts a great influence on the chip-formation mechanism. Thus, there is a need for developing fundamental understanding of material’s behaviour and material removal processes. While the effect of crystallographic orientation on cutting-force variation is extensively reported in the literature, the development of the single crystal machining models is somewhat limited.
