The provider of solid-based simulation, verification and toolpath generation solutions is presenting its new libraries on thread safety and solid closing. MachineWorks v.7 is an extensive modification of the company’s libraries, allowing users to take advantage of multiple-core architectures in multi-core PCs and CNCs. Software libraries have been made thread-safe for all likely usage scenarios. Users can also to exploit the benefits of multiple core machines by internally multithreading algorithms and running multiple simulations simultaneously, the company says.
 
Solid-closing algorithms can close gaps in models and fix self-intersecting loops and faces. The new solid-closing module means allows users to produce watertight models from almost any input geometry. 
 
The software can compute toolpaths in an environment closely coupled with the company’s simulation and verification libraries. These toolpath generators, which are designed to produce gouge-free toolpaths, include strategies such as Area and Rest Roughing; Water Line, Rasters, Radial and Spiral cuts; Constant Stepover; and Pencil and Parallel Pencil. In addition, Machine Simulation functions including material removal and full clash detection have been enhanced.
