CGTech’s Vericut CNC version 8 simulates all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet, riveting, robots, mill/turn and parallel kinematics. It operates independently, but also can be integrated with leading CAM systems.
Vericut Machine simulation detects collisions and near-misses between all machine tool components, such as axis slides, heads, turrets, rotary tables, spindles, tool changers, fixtures, workpieces, cutting tools, and other user-defined objects. Users also can set up ‘near-miss zones’ around components to check for close calls and detect over-travel errors. Machine movements and material replacement can even be simulated while stepping or playing backwards.
Upon upgrading to Vericut 8, customers will notice the new Ribbon Bar: it allows you to quickly select the function you want to use. As you move from tab to tab, the Ribbon bar dynamically updates to show the options available for that tab. Options are grouped by the function they perform within Vericut.
The Ribbon Bar is customizable, but to ease the transition for existing users, a “Vericut Classic” setting organizes all of the menus and options where users previously found them. Several other layout options are included and can be selected depending on the task at hand. Users also can create and save their own layouts as needed for different jobs.
