CGTech to Demonstrate VERICUT Additive Module at RAPID + TCT

At RAPID + TCT 2018 VERICUT version 8.1 will be featured in CGTech’s booth: #843. VERICUT CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software simulates all types of CNC machining, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes. The software operates independently, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.

Irvine, CA - Feb 27, 2018 - At RAPID + TCT 2018 VERICUT version 8.1 will be featured in CGTech's booth: #843. VERICUT CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software simulates all types of CNC machining, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes. The software operates independently, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.


"Additive manufacturing applications create new possibilities for manufacturers," said Gene Granata, CGTech's VERICUT Product Manager. "Adding this technology to VERICUT provides unique solutions that bridge the gap between designing for AM, and choosing the best manufacturing strategies for their parts."

VERICUT's Additive module simulates both additive and traditional CNC machining capabilities applied in any order. Simulating both operations identifies potential problems that can occur when integrating additive methods. The user has access to detailed history stored with VERICUT's unique droplet technology, which saves programmers time by quickly identifying the source of errors with a single click.

This additive capability shows realistic laser cladding and material deposition, detects collisions between the machine and additive part, and finds errors, voids, and misplaced material. VERICUT simulates the post-processed NC code that controls the CNC machine ensuring proper usage of additive functions and laser parameters. Users can experiment with combining additive and metal removal processes to determine optimal safe hybrid manufacturing methods.
