Short summary
Firstly, the tooth surface modification method based on the parabolic forming blade and cutter inclination was proposed. Next, the modified tooth surface equation was deduced and the 3D reconstruction of the modified tooth surface is realized. Then, the influence of modification parameters on tooth surface curvature characteristics was analysed. Finally, the tooth contact analysis model was established to discuss the influence of modification parameters on the elliptical contact area.
