Vericut Users' ExchangeClick image to enlarge

CGTech will host the first Vericut Users’ Exchange (VUE) meeting for 2022 on April 4.

The event will take place in Irvine, CA. VUE is an annual event held for Vericut customers to share ideas and learn about new features as well as tips and tricks for improving performance and efficiency from other users and CGTech. VUE is free to attend.

The first set of VUE meetings will occur in North America through the months of May and June, giving users a chance to explore most of the features already available in Vericut 9.2.2. Attendees will also get a first-hand look at what’s being developed for the next major release, Vericut 9.3.

“We’re excited to get back to in-person VUE events this year to show the improvements made to Vericut’s current version, like enhancements added to streamline simulation, optimization and powerful options for reporting,” says Gene Granata, director of product management at CGTech.

“Then we’ll show what’s coming in our next major release, Vericut 9.3. Due for release this summer, 9.3 better connects machines and data to bring Vericut’s digital twins to new levels of exactness, enabling users to verify that their NC machine and setup match what was verified by Vericut and collect valuable metrics about machining processes that help all NC programmers perform like machining experts.”

New features in Vericut 9.2.2 include improvements to core features, improving memory management, graphics, and overall efficiency. Updates to inspection reports and reports provide users with more information such as surface finish callouts, machine metrics, and new cutting condition metrics. X-Caliper and Annotations have also been updated to include 3D and 2D (flat to screen) text for dimensions on annotation planes, text and font options, as well as multiple leader lines.
