The newest release of Vericut software, version 5.4, creates inspection instructions automatically, complete with in-process feature dimensions created during a simulation of the NC program. This helps establish a method to create and document inspection procedures. With a simple template included in the program, the auto-generated inspection reports are highly customizable by the user. Creating the inspection sequence instructions is quick and easy, according to the company, because the manufacturing engineer uses the in-process, "as-machined" model to describe which features to inspect. To add inspection points, the user just clicks on a cut feature. The software then identifies the feature, automatically extracts feature sizes from the electronic in-process model and applies a standard tolerance for the measurement. The user can then add any additional instructions and select the measuring instrument from a list. When the inspection sequence is completed, the finished inspection report can be saved in standard HTML or PDF format for printing or sharing via e-mail. The program includes CNC machine simulation and verification and optimization that enables users to simulate the entire machining process on the computer at the programming stage. It reduces scrap loss, minimizes rework and protects manufacturers' investment in CNC equipment and processes.
