CAM software manufacturer CGTech (Irvine, Calif.) has announced the winners of its 2008 VERICUT Super-User contest. The contestants, CGTech customers, were encouraged — during more than 20 VERICUT User Exchange meetings held in Irvine during 2008 as part of its 20th anniversary celebration — to submit their most interesting VERICUT simulation files. Entries were judged on creativity, complexity and uniqueness. “Our customers have shown amazing skill in their use of VERICUT, and it was impossible to narrow the submissions down to one winner, so we recognized the top four,” says CGTech’s president, Jon Prun. They were Don Moody of Precision Machine & Manufacturing for his M37 SNK Horizontal 5-axis mill; Karlo Apro of CNC Software for his Haas VF2 5-axis vertical mill; Yogesh Walimbe of Aesseal for his Mori Seiki GV503 5-axis machining center; and Shailendra Balkrishna Vaidya of TATA for his Haas 5-axis engraving machining. In addition to a 16-GB iPod Touch, the winners will receive a VERICUT simulation to load on their new iPods.
