This paper proposes a novel pre-processing method for industrial robotic CNC-milling. The method targets a hybrid machining process, in which the main bulk of material is removed through robotic hot or abrasive wire cutting, after which regular CNC-machining is employed for removal of the remaining material volume. Hereby, the roughing process is significantly sped up, reduc-ing overall machining time. We compare our method to the convex hull and re-move between 5% and 75% more material; on most models we obtain a 50% improvement. Our method ensures that no overcutting happens and that the result is cuttable by wire cutting.
