Abstract: This study has been aimed at drafting and analyzing single point cutting tools based on various insert shapes. The models were made using SOLIDWORKS software and the analysis was done using ANSYS. Von-mises Stress distribution, Total Deformation, Strain, Strain energy based on non-linear analysis of the cutting edges were calculated under a cutting force of 5000N and a shear force of 2000N is applied with increments 10% of maximum value starting 0N. The result gives the best shape that undergoes least tool wear and least deformation under different load conditions.
