VERICUT 5.4 features several enhancements designed to increase the ability of manufacturing engineers to inspect, analyze, and document the CNC programming and machining process in order to produce better results and reduce the time spent in the programming and machining cycle.

Said Bill Hasenjaeger, product marketing manager, “This release really gives VERICUT users a great range of tools that make analyzing their processes much easier and faster than ever before. We’re able to pull more intelligence from both the cut part and the machining process so they can apply this knowledge to achieve an even higher level of accuracy and efficiency.”

VERICUT features the ability to detect gouges and excess material by virtually “embedding” the design model inside the cut stock and comparing the differences between the two. This AUTO-DIFF function is enhanced in version 5.4 to make accurate comparisons of large cut stock faster and easier. Especially useful for finding errors and differences on large parts, a new “Compare By Region” option provides the ability to individually check certain areas of the part without having to perform an AUTO-DIFF comparison on the entire model. This dramatically speeds calculation time because the software needs only to focus on the specified area. The region can then be expanded over the entire stock model. This feature is useful when there is not enough memory to perform an AUTO-DIFF calculation of the entire stock model at once.

VERICUT 5.4 includes powerful tools for creating custom reports, tailored for a specific user/department/company’s needs, containing all the data generated during the simulation process for shop floor or in-process documentation, NC programming documentation, or to capture the information generated in the VERICUT session.
