(Irvine, California, November 24, 2009) – CGTech, the developer of VERICUT CNC verification and simulation software, announced new capabilities for users of Siemens PLM Software’s NX CAM. VERICUT has long been tightly integrated with NX software via a robust “NX-to-VERICUT” interface, and now those who have this interface can reference an NX part file from within their verification session. For existing “NX-to-VERICUT” users no additional licenses are required; VERICUT opens the part file using the currently installed NX software.

“The Siemens PLM Software – CGTech partnership adds value for NX users by providing a single versatile CNC simulation analysis and optimization tool. This enhancement gives NX users a more streamlined experience by reducing the number of files to manage,” said CGTech Product Marketing Manager Bill Hasenjaeger. “This enhancement increases the benefits of CGTech’s NX interface, which offers users of VERICUT’s G-Code and machine simulation capabilities an easy way to configure simulations for complex machines and machining processes.”

The interface sets-up and runs VERICUT directly from NX’s Manufacturing menus, automatically referencing Design, Stock, and Fixture models, NC programs, and tooling information in VERICUT. VERICUT simulates both CLSF and post-processed G-code NC programs for even the most complex CNC machine tools and controls. In VERICUT version 7.0, the NX interface was enhanced to enable specifying NC sub-programs and subroutines to be simulated in VERICUT.
