Vericut 9.0 features several enhancements designed to increase power and improve efficiency. For instance, users can now: save time with instant access to viewing the workpiece, CNC machine, or both; use major functions (like Section, X-Caliper and Auto-Diff) in any view; easily switch between workpiece and machine views, layouts and docking arrangements; and auto-configure Vericut for optimisation with improved connectivity to tooling websites and cloud repositories.
“Vericut 9.0’s all-new graphics display sets the bar for realism and streamlines user actions in all views,” says Gavin Powell, technical director at CGTech Ltd. “In version 9.0, there’s more flexibility to display/hide the machine and other components, as well as enhanced sections and better translucency. In addition, most users will experience gains in performance, especially in Vericut’s free Reviewer app.”
CGTech will also demonstrate Vericut’s Force optimisation module at Advanced Engineering. Vericut plus Force provides an integrated simulation-optimisation solution that can reduce machining times, and improve cutting tool and machine life. All NC programs, new or old, can be optimised with Force to run as efficiently and safely as possible. Force is available for milling, turning and mill-turn machines.
Alongside the standard Vericut CNC simulation and optimisation solutions, CGTech will demonstrate the latest versions of Vericut Composites Programming (VCP) and Vericut Composites Simulation (VCS) software.
VCP now puts more power into user’s hands and, with more information available than ever before, part programmers can generate and export part statistics directly from VCP. The addition of the all-new summary reports allows engineers to compare different lay-up strategies, and feel confident that the optimal design prevails.
Powell says: “Companies now more than ever are realising the importance of simulation and the digital-twin model. With VCS, users can watch their parts come to life on their machine, leaving them confident that the intended design will match what is manufactured.”
