Vero Software CAD/CAM system includes more than 340 product enhancements, solutions for mould makers
UK – Vero Software showcased Visi 21 with extensive enhancements at this year's PDM show.
The company says that its updated CAD developments include a new process for managing multiple instances of the same geometry within an assembly. For example, multi-insert moulds and dies can now be managed with a single “master” part which will automatically update all references of the same geometry if any part modification is required, Vero explains.
Standard catalogue components will also be managed by the multi-instance technology. Vero adds that the release also includes motion study simulation tools allowing the user to define timelines which control the movement for various groups of components. The physical interaction of model geometry can be detected and the results of complex mechanisms simulated and investigated – ideal when validating the tool design and checking for potential collisions with slides, cams and lifters. Other CAD highlights are said to include Part Revision Management, that now allows the management of model changes after they have been released to manufacture. A revision history is automatically created when a model has been released with the model geometry automatically locked. Any change to a released model will create a copy of the data and update the revision number, providing a history track and ensuring updated part manufacture.
Vero says Visi 21 is a release with significant CAM focus, including a new look to the CAM Navigator.
