In order to achieve the special functional surfaces machining, a two-round design method for the ultra-precision machine tool design is proposed in this article. This method starts from the engineering design experience; by alternately using the simulation and experiment, the “design-simulation-experiment-simulation-redesign experiment” strategy is employed to the machine tool design. The main influence factors for all of the specifications are determined by this alternating strategy. The analysis of the machine tool performance and the surface generation simulation are well integrated, and the test software is used early at the design stage to estimate the predicted surface. This design method is used for an ultra-precision flycutting machine tool design for potassium dihydrogen phosphate crystal machining, and the results show that by the two rounds of design and modification, the final machine tool meets the processing requirements well. It is believed that the proposed model can be successfully applied to an ultra-precision machine tool designed for achieving strict processing requirements.
