VirtualGrind PRO is the updated version of the software VirtualGrind developed by Rolomatic for its GrindSmart series of machines. The update offers improved navigation and is especially useful for complex, special tools. It is a modular, open system that gives unlimited flexibility in tool design.

Software enhancements include a 3D simulation of the machine, as well as tool support elements that, combined with the 3DCalc tool simulator, allow collision tests and "near zero" setup time.

Import functions are now available for DXF files for tool, wheel and blank shapes. The export function of a complete 3D tool simulation allows STEP files to be exported into CAD programs to create tool prints. JPEG files as well as 3D viewer files can also be generated for customer review.

Other highlights of the software include flexible tool geometry, precise mathematical solutions, cycle time calculation, flute grinding, and more.
