CGTech recently kicked off the first of 26 North American Vericut Users’ Exchange (VUE) events in 2019. At VUE events, attendees learn about new software features, tips and tricks for improving manufacturing efficiency, and express ideas about future designs. More than 5,000 attendees are expected at more than 50 VUE events worldwide this year.

Attendees will learn about the new features in Vericut 9.0, which are said to include enhanced graphics, improved efficiency and added capabilities.

Vericut Product Manager, Gene Granata says, “In addition to seeing the exciting new things coming, another great benefit of attending VUE is that users learn about helpful features available in the software they use today, but may not have been aware of. In addition, they get to meet CGTech staff and share knowledge with other Vericut users that they can use immediately to improve their processes.”

Attendees can register for any VUE event by calling 949-753-1050 or visiting cgtech.com/about/vue. There is no charge to attend.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

  • 3D Scanning: Reproducing One-Of-A-Kind Prototypes

    A laser scanning system helps this shop capture the free-form surfaces on a hand-sculpted original. The resulting digitized models are the basis for CAM applications such as programming a CNC machining center. 

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.
