CGTech to exhibit VERICUT 7.3 at EMO

CGTech will demonstrate new version of VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimisation software at the 2013 EMO show. VERICUT 7.3 includes many enhancements that significantly improve performance and simplify simulating of a CNC machine. Changes to how users interact with VERICUT further improve VERICUT’s workflow and are a direct result of CGTech’s philosophy of continuous product improvement.
VERICUT function overviewVERICUT is a CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software which enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving out NC programs. It reduces scrap loss and rework. The program also optimises NC programs in order to save time and produce higher quality surface finish. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machine tools, including those from leading manufacturers such as DMG-Mori Seiki, Mazak, Makino, Matsuura, Hermle, DIXI, and Chiron. VERICUT runs standalone but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems such as Catia, NX, Creo Parametric (Pro/E), MasterCAM, PowerMill, EdgeCAM, hyperMILL, Esprit and GibbsCAM.
New user interface enhancementsThe VERICUT user interface is very customisable. In version 7.3, the first thing a user will notice is the all new icons, available in multiple sizes. There are also several user-selectable colour themes, and every window and icon can be optionally displayed or hidden.
Improved collision checking speedVersion 7.3 performance is now 5-10 times (or more) faster when the NC program moves the simulated machine into potential collision conditions. A significant in-house development effort produced enhancements to VERICUT’s industry leading collision algorithms, removing the need to adjust complex machine models to improve performance.Other new features since version 7.2• Drag/drop files from windows for quick set-up.• Constant gouge check simulation with very large design models is now 2-5 times faster.• Automatically save a reviewer file during the simulation session. The VERICUT Reviewer incorporates all the functionality of NC Review mode in a stand-alone viewer that does not require a license.• Measure tool assembly components in the tool manager.• New CAD/CAM interfaces are available for Surfcam and SolidWorks. Many other CAD/CAM interface improvements have been implemented.• SpacePilot mouse/navigator motion is improved.• Over 400 customer-driven enhancements and software change requests have been completed since version 7.2.
