CGTech has announced the release of Vericut CNC Simulation Software, Version 8.2.

New convenience features include a right mouse button ribbon that puts favourite Vericut functions a click away and provides access to external applications. The configurable Heads Up Display (HUD) improves simulation monitoring and visibility by showing the NC program, or machining and cutting status information, overlaid on top of Vericut’s graphical views. HUD provides constant access to important details about the machining process, while keeping simulation views as large as possible for optimal viewing. NC Program Alert symbols and colors highlight errors and warnings found in NC programs, making it faster and easier to identify problem sources.
Force is a physics-based NC program optimization module that analyzes and optimizes cutting conditions to achieve ideal chip thicknesses, while managing the cutting forces and spindle power required. Vericut 8.2 adds Force Turning to optimize lathe turning, and mill turn operations, when combined with Force Milling. Force Turning enables the creation of NC programs for optimal cutting of inside/outside diameters, shoulders, as well as in corners and tight spaces, without encountering excessive cutting forces or high spindle power demands.
Vericut 8.2 adds realism to additive simulation and detects common error conditions programmers face when creating parts additively. Additive material can be applied “as programmed” via the additive path, or projected to the part surface for a more “natural” deposition behaviour. With projection, material build rates vary based on changes in bead overlap, acute corner motions and starting/stopping at the same location – all of which can cause unpredictable material buildup. Users can verify that laser focal distance stays within the tolerance range required for proper cladding, and that excessive material “overhang” conditions do not exist, which can lead to improper adherence. Warnings are given for non-conforming additive conditions to help programmers determine when additive strategies are likely to fail, or when it may be beneficial to make a milling cut.
