FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pro/E-to-VERICUT Interface(Orlando, FL, June 9, 2009) – CGTech, the developer of VERICUT® software, announced an enhanced PRO/E-to-VERICUT user interface at the PTC-User conference in Orlando, Florida June 7-10.

“The enhanced Pro/E-to-VERICUT Interface gives Pro/E users an effective way to access advanced features in VERICUT from within the CAD/CAM environment,” said CGTech Product Marketing Manager Bill Hasenjaeger. “This new interface 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 launches VERICUT from within Pro/Engineer’s NC menus and can be run interactively or in batch mode. Tool path motions for the selected operation or NC sequence; tool descriptions; and reference, workpiece and fixture models from the current manufacturing session are automatically transferred to VERICUT. The VERICUT session runs as an external process, enabling you to work in Pro/Engineer while VERICUT verifies the NC program. The new enhanced interface will also add support for G-code processing, machine simulation, and multiple setups.
