Vero Software says its Machining Strategist v11 is a powerful multi-axis CAM solution that generates optimum roughing and finishing CNC toolpaths for both the office and shopfloor environment. The software is a CAD-independent solution that can work with data from various 3D modeling systems. The latest release includes support for VISI 17, and the external interfaces have been aligned to Parasolid v21 and Catia v5 r19.
New geometry tools for model re-triangulation allow the user to set different meshing tolerances to different faces. This provides the ability to set tighter tolerances for critical zones or smaller areas to machine with little impact on the rest of the model geometry, the company says. Further developments have been made to 2D stock models, tool sheets and post-processing. The software also includes, enhancements to toolpath calculation times provide productivity gains.
