CGTech to highlight additive enhancements at Rapid + TCT

In booth #430 at RAPID + TCT 2019, CGTech will preview additive manufacturing enhancements to be released in VERICUT version 9.0. VERICUT CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software simulates all types of CNC machining, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes. The software operates independently, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.

“With VERICUT, NC programmers and planners are able to determine which additive equipment and build strategies will work best,” said CGTech Product Manager Gene Granata. “By simulating real NC data on digital twin machines, VERICUT can prevent expensive crashes, identify conflicting setups, and ensure additive functions are properly controlled by the NC program.”

VERICUT 9.0 includes several advancements for additive manufacturing. Users can add material and cut via any traditional machining operation, in any desired order. Version 9’s enhanced graphics provide sharper views of the additive processes, and flexibility to rotate or zoom while simulating. Users can verify the entire manufacturing process, and ensure additively manufactured parts match engineered designs, by simulating all machining setups including post-process finishing. Analysis tools include the ability to section and measure additive parts, report on build times, and volumes of material used.
