The next version of CGTech's CNC simulation software VERICUT will include an additive manufacturing (AM) simulation module.
It says that it is responding to user requests for VERICUT to simulate the entire CNC process of hybrid machines that combine subtractive machining and metal additive deposition.
The new AM capability in VERICUT V8.1 simulates the same NC code that will drive the CNC machine, enabling companies to virtually experiment with combining additive and traditional 'subtractive' metal removal processes to determine optimal safe 'hybrid' production methods.
“Additive manufacturing applications are limitless for manufacturers,” says Tony Shrewsbury, Managing Director, CGTech, UK. “CGTech has always been forward thinking. Adding this cutting-edge technology to VERICUT provides unique solutions that address the needs of our customers taking advantage of the rapidly expanding AM market.”
