Version 7.0 of CGTech’s (Irvine, Calif.) VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimization software features enhancements that reduce the time required for manufacturing engineers to develop, analyze, inspect and document the CNC programming and machining process. VERICUT is CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. It also optimizes NC programs to save time and produce higher quality surface finish. It can be integrated with CAM systems, such as CATIA V5, NX, Pro/ENGINEER, MasterCAM, EdgeCAM and GibbsCAM. Among the improvements is optimization of internal code for faster, more efficient motion simulation. It is also now possible to pause in the middle of an NC block. Several new Step options enable the user to step into, over, or to the end of any subroutines used in the user’s NC program sequence. All collision configuration is centrally located, eliminating any possibility of duplicate collision checks. Finally, the CATIA V5-To-VERICUT Interface has been enhanced with new features for managing tools. The user can merge tools from a template with new tools from the Part Operation, and optionally put all unique tools in one tool library. The user can also use CATIA-referenced STL models.
