According to generating principle of spiral bevel gear and space meshing theory, formation theory of generation line of tooth surface about skew bevel gears is studied. A new processing method of tooth surface with the generation line as chord of face circular cutters is put forward. Moving process model of milling processing with skew bevel gears is built, and profile of the gears can be machined using three axes linkage method based on the model. Machining test of the gears is carried out on

Furthermore, 3D points cloud model of tooth surface are calculated in light of mathematical model of the tooth surface which has been established, and datum of mesh nodes on actual tooth surface are collected. Then surface errors is evaluated by normal vector equation of the tooth surface which has been developed. Finally, this method is proved to be effective and feasible.
