Vericut Version 9.1 released with increased simulation capabilities

June 30, 2020

CGTech, Irvine, California, USA, has announced the latest release of its Vericut software, Version 9.1. Vericut CNC machine simulation, verification, and optimisation software simulates all types of CNC machining, Additive Manufacturing and hybrid manufacturing processes. The software operates independently, but can also be integrated within the leading CAM systems.

Vericut 9.1 incorporates several new features said to increase efficiency and enable users to do more in less time. It offers new visibility options, and enhancements to its toolpath optimisation, Additive Manufacturing, tooling & multi-tool station, measuring & inspection/reporting capabilities, and incorporates a large number of customer-driven improvements and software requests.

“Vericut 9.1 continues to enhance the User Experience through continued advancements with graphics and display controls, streamlined user controls, and more new capabilities and features than ever before”, explained Gene Granata, Vericut Product Manager. “Version 9.1 also introduces a ‘Learn’ mode for Force optimisation – a form of Artificial Intelligence for faster/easier NC Program optimisation. Using Learn mode, almost anyone can create highly-optimised NC programs from existing programs, without having to reprogram them.”

Among the features added, Vericut 9.1 offers a new ‘Additive’ Default Machining Type. This enables Vericut to predict the system resources that will be needed to additively manufacture the designed part, including a starting stock build plate or model. 

Vericut can build multiple parts created by a ’nested’ build NC program, enabling additively manufactured parts to be independently relocated or assembled for finish machining, or exported. This feature is said to be especially helpful for large-scale Additive Manufacturing.
