CGTech and MachiningCloud have jointly announced a MachiningCloud enhancement that enables Vericut users to import tool manufacturers’ cutting parameters from MachiningCloud directly into Vericut. Vericut CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software detects CNC programming errors as well as potential collisions from the same NC code that drives the CNC machine. MachiningCloud is a product data provider for cutting tool manufacturers, CNC machines and workholding.

Users first build a MachiningCloud job containing their tool assemblies; then, they export the job, downloading it to their local computer; then, from within Vericut they click to import all the cutting tool assembly data, including 3D geometry and cutting parameters; finally, users simulate using the tool assemblies just created in MachiningCloud. This process enables users to verify that the tools were programmed coreectly.

Vericut says that importing the tool’s cutting parameters and 3D tool geometry into Vericut will enable users to take advantage of other verification checks its software offers to further improve their programs. These cutting parameters can also be used in Vericut's Force and OptiPath modules to better optimize the CNC program.
