Version 6.2 of CGTech's VERICUT CNC software has been released.
CGTech (Irvine, Calif.) has announced the release of the latest version of its VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimization software. Enhancements and features include: a new NC Program Preview that offers an option to process an NC program in VERICUT without actually simulating material being removed; user-configurable text coloring; syntax checking and block renumbering options; a Turret Setup wizard that enables users to easily load, change tools, or change tool positions in a turret; changes to the Tool Manager that enable users to describe the shape, position and orientation of a waterjet cutter or a tap in a tap tool assembly. The software also now supports simulation and analysis of tapping operations. The X-Caliper feature allows users to measure thickness, volume, depth, gaps, distances, angles, hole diameters, corner radii and scallop heights. A new Setup Plan window has been added that enables users to add dimensions or notes to create a drawing of a setup layout or setup plan. The AUTO-DIFF feature, which allows users to automatically detect differences between a CAD design model and a VERICUT-simulated cut part, includes a value to represent surface cuts exactly matching (i.e., with no deviation from) the design model.
