Simulation Software Enables Direct Download of OEM Tool Geometries

CGTech and MachiningCloud have jointly introduced a feature that enables users to import an entire tooling package into Vericut 7.4.

CGTech and MachiningCloud have jointly introduced a feature that enables users to import an entire tooling package into Vericut 7.4. Users can directly download all the tool assemblies within a defined tooling package on the MachiningCloud cutting tool and workholding database. Vericut’s connection with MachiningCloud is said to make OEM tool geometry more easily accessible for part program simulation, with simulation-ready tool models representative of the commercial tools users actually purchase and use. According to CGTech, a tool can be added for use within Vericut in fewer steps than manually configuring it for a simulation session.
