VISI 18 from the provider of CAD/CAM/CAE solutions for the tooling industry includes many new features to speed and simplify tool design and manufacture. VISI Machining has been updated with tools to enhance the automated Compass Technology including a new method to manage the smallest distance between two or more sides of a geometric feature. This distance can be used to identify the smallest tool diameter for a pocket or define other machining variables. Other CAM developments include improved 3D constant stepover, enhanced 3D combi-finishing, updated rapid management and improved drilling cycles with a new wizard application for constructing complex, multi-operation cycles.
 
Also included is the first release of VISI PEPS-Wire for wire EDM applications. VISI PEPS-Wire offers automated two- and four-axis feature recognition, improved improved geometry tools and combined milling and wire EDM cutting strategies. In addition, sheet metal development has been improved with dynamic animation of the forming process and a batch procedure for developing multiple components simultaneously with a report for each piece.
