CGTech has released the next major version of Vericut CNC machine simulation and optimization software. Vericut 7.0 features performance-improving enhancements that reduce the time required for manufacturing engineers to develop, analyze, inspect and document the CNC programming and machining process. Developer resources have focused on diligent code optimization and customer-driven enhancements.

According to the company, not only is the software extremely stable and significantly faster, it has never been easier to set up a project.

The motion processing is all new in version 7.0. Thousands of development hours have gone toward optimizing the internal code for the fastest, most efficient motion simulation, the company says. Motion simulation refers to how the software calculates the motion path from the NC data and animates it. The motion in all view types is now coordinated and tool images are consistent. Collision tolerance and motion display are independent.

Other new features include a “pause” option that allows the user to pause in the middle of an NC block; more control over drill cycles; collision configuration is now done via the collision branch in the Project Tree; the software can read NX part files directly when NX is on the same computer; and the CATIA V5–To-Vericut interface has been enhanced with many new features for managing tools.
