CGTech launches VERICUT 8.1 version – AM simulation

VERICUT Additive module verifies laser functions, detects collisions, and checks material deposition.

CGTech has announced the next Version of its world leading CNC Simulation software, VERICUT, which will include a new Additive Manufacturing (AM) simulation module.

With the advent of hybrid machining centres that combine subtractive machining and metal additive deposition, CGTech has responded to user requests for VERICUT to simulate the entire CNC process of hybrid machines.

With more manufactures adopting AM into their daily operations, the timeliness of adding this new capability in VERICUT is critical. The new AM capability in VERICUT V8.1 simulates the same NC code that will drive the CNC machine, enabling companies to virtually experiment with combining additive and traditional “subtractive” metal removal processes to determine optimal safe “Hybrid” production methods.

CGTech Ltd will present the new capability to its extensive user base at a series of VERICUT User Exchange meetings across the UK in 2017.
