Vericut 7.3 is CG Tech's latest release of its CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving out NC programs.

According to the company, the release includes many enhancements that increase performance and simplify the process of simulating a CNC machine. Changes to the user interface are said to further improve Vericut’s workflow, while the software also helps reduce scrap loss and rework, CG Tech said. It added that the Vericut user interface is very customisable and the collision checking speed has been increased by five to ten times compared to the previous release.

The version features new icons available in multiple sizes and with user-selectable colour themes. Every window and icon can be optionally displayed or hidden, the software company emphasised. Moreover, user-configurable “Favourites” can consist of commonly used folders and files, and each item can be drag/dropped into a project. To help objects stand out in the machine simulation scene, an “Edge Display” option analyses models and finds and displays their edges without affecting simulation speed. Users can also create a list of “Stop At” events such as “Collisions”, “Warnings”, “Tool changes”, or “End of each setup”, the company said.
