Vericut 9.0

Version 9.0 of Vericut from CGTech is described as “smarter” than previous versions, offering more robust connections to tooling databases and CAM systems. Vericut machine simulation, verification and optimization software simulates all types of CNC machining, additive and hybrid manufacturing processes. 

Commenting on the new version’s improvements, Product Manager Gene Granata says, “Most users will also experience gains in performance, especially when simulating additive or hybrid AM operations. Enhancements to Vericut’s free Reviewer app lets programmers share with others (like machinists or quality assurance personnel) how parts are manufactured.”

Vericut 9.0 features several enhancements designed to increase power and improve efficiency, including a new graphics engine. The software provides sharper, clearer and more realistic views of machines and the machining process, making it easier to spot problems and imperfections in machined parts. Appearance settings for components and models can be used to add realism to objects in simulations. 

Verification has been streamlined in version 9.0. Any of Vericut’s major functions, such as AUTO-DIFF, Section, and X-Caliper, can be used in any view, which also increases productivity. 

Using Force “Analyze”, users can spot potentially dangerous machining conditions or identify underutilized tools without any prior configuration. Force Charts has a new “Fill Comparison” option to help visualize the changes made by Force optimization to feed rates and chip loads.

X-Caliper now has several new measurements as well as features that provide greater control over how measurements (dimensions) are shown. Images with dimensions can be printed, saved to an image file or utilized in Setup Plans. Setup Plan capability is designed to ease the creation of images from the simulation with dimensions or notes that help others understand the manufacturing process.

  • 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.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.
