A VERICUT enhancement in MachiningCloud – jointly announced by CGTech and MachiningCloud – enables VERICUT customers to import cutting parameters from cutting tool manufacturers from within MachiningCloud directly into VERICUT.

VERICUT CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software detects CNC programming errors as well as potential collisions from the same NC code that drives the CNC machine. MachiningCloud is a product data provider for world-leading cutting tool manufacturers, CNC machines and workholding.

After defining a tooling package on the MachiningCloud and directly downloading all the tool assemblies within the package into VERICUT, customers can now obtain the cutting parameters of the tool to verify that the tool was programmed correctly.

The process is simple:

  1. Build a MachiningCloud job containing your tool assemblies
  2. Export the job downloading it to your local computer
  3. From within VERICUT click once to import all the tools from the job. In this step, 3D geometry representing the cutting tool assembly is imported into VERICUT along with the cutting parameters for that tool
  4. Simulate using your tool assemblies just created in the MachiningCloud
