(Irvine, California) – CGTech is happy to announce the winners of its 2008 VERICUT Super-User contest. The contest was first announced in Irvine at the first of over 20 VERICUT User Exchange meetings held in 2008 as part of its ongoing 20th anniversary celebrations. Customers were encouraged to submit their most interesting VERICUT simulation files and were judged on creativity, complexity and uniqueness.

“We are very pleased with the results of this contest. Our customers have shown amazing skill in their use of VERICUT and it was impossible to narrow the submissions down to one winner,” said CGTech’s President Jon Prun. “As a result, we decided to recognize the top four outstanding simulations.”

The following NC programmers are recognized as 2008 VERICUT Super-Users:

  •     Don Moody of Precision Machine & Manufacturing for his M37 SNK Horizontal 5-axis mill
  •     Karlo Apro of CNC Software for his Haas VF2 5-axis vertical mill
  •     Yogesh Walimbe of Aesseal for his Mori Seiki GV503 5-axis machining center
  •     Shailendra Balkrishna Vaidya of TATA for his Haas 5-axis engraving machining

In addition to a 16GB iPod Touch, the winners will receive a VERICUT simulation to load on their new iPods.
