User Interface Improved

CGTech has enhanced the PRO/E-to-Vericut user interface, which gives Pro/E users an effective way to access advanced features in Vericut from within the CAD/CAM environment, the company says. It offers users of Vericut’s G-Code and Machine Simulation capabilities an easy way to configure simulations for complex machines and machining processes, the company says.

CGTech has enhanced the PRO/E-to-Vericut user interface, which gives Pro/E users an effective way to access advanced features in Vericut from within the CAD/CAM environment, the company says. It offers users of Vericut’s G-Code and Machine Simulation capabilities an easy way to configure simulations for complex machines and machining processes, the company says.

The interface launches Vericut from within Pro/Engineer’s NC menus and can be run interactively or in batch mode. Toolpath motions for the selected operation or NC sequence, tool descriptions, and reference, workpiece and fixture models from the current manufacturing session are automatically transferred to Vericut. The session runs as an external process, enabling a user to work in Pro/Engineer while Vericut verifies the NC program. The new enhanced interface will also add support for G-code processing, machine simulation and multiple setups.
