CGTech’s latest release of Vericut software, Version 9.1, improves CNC simulation with several features aimed at increasing efficiency. This release includes new features such as automatic detection of CUT/NOCUT layers within a DFX file, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) for optimization in “Learn” Mode, and discrete control over near miss and collision detection properties and tolerances.
Vericut 9.1 also includes new visibility options, enhancements to toolpath optimization, tooling and multi-tool stations, and measuring and inspection/reporting. Vericut 9.1 has an “Additive” Default Machining Type. This enables Vericut to predict system resources that will be needed to additively build the as-designed part, including a starting stock build plate or model. With this feature, Vericut can build multiple parts created by a “nested” build NC program.
Hundreds of customer-driven improvements and software requests were also incorporated in this latest version, the company says.
VERICUT CNC machine simulation, verification, and optimization software simulates all types of CNC machining, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes. The software operates independently, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.
