Significant developments in CAD and CAM functionality in the latest release of VISI, from Vero Software, give users additional speed and quality throughout their design and machining processes.
CAD updates in VISI 2017 R1 are focusing on the user experience and adding enhancements to allow customers to speed up their design process.
Examples of these include speed improvement to the picking process with support for dynamic “drag and drop,” dynamic zoom to and from an area on the screen by holding down the space bar, intelligent chaining for joining wireframe elements together, and single right-hand mouse-click to confirm commands instead of ticking a box with a keystroke.
And for CAM, an update to geometry management means individual pieces are no longer limited by a specific project. It gives more freedom in picking the piece, obstacle or stock, allowing any combination. This is also used for picking faces and face lists, all managed in a much more user-friendly interface, and driven inside the operation itself. Everything is now linked to the operation, not the project, and all geometry is managed interactively, picking the specific pieces or faces to machine.
