CGTech just released VERICUT Software Version 8.0.2, CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software. Numerous enhancements have been added to VERICUT’s Force™ optimisation module.
Most notably, the updated Force “physics-based” toolpath optimisation module now receives input values directly from cloud-based tooling, and benefits from many new features that streamline optimisation setup. By micro analysing the cutting conditions encountered by an NC Program, Force ensures NC programs have optimal feed rates, and ideal chip thicknesses that do not exceed safe force or power limits.
“With a specific focus on improving connectivity and closing the design to manufacturing loop, Version 8.0.2 makes even more use of tooling and cutting performance information available in CAM systems and cloud-based tooling,” said CGTech Ltd Managing Director, Tony Shrewsbury. “This direct input streamlines setup for more robust simulation, and enables users to ‘see’ and compare different cutting strategies to ultimately choose optimal methods for their manufacturing environments.”
Other new features include improved Charts display, which enables NC programmers and Mechanical Engineers to virtually “see” and evaluate force, chip thickness, volume removal rates, and more in NC programs before running on their CNC machine.
VERICUT 8.0.2 contains several other helpful enhancements to machine simulation graphic rendering, Tool Manager, and VERICUT Drill and Fastener (VDAF) simulation making VERICUT faster and easier.
