Irvine, California – CGTech, the developer of VERICUT NC verification, optimization, and simulation software, has announced a series of “Quick Start” training video sessions. The sessions, currently being made available at no cost to current customers, have been designed to quickly teach a new VERICUT user the fundamentals of running a VERICUT simulation by utilizing one of several available VERICUT CAM Interfaces. Each set of training files includes videos, documentation, sample files, and exercises for the user to follow along.

“VERICUT can be easy to use, and many users are up-and-running very quickly with a minimal amount of training,” said Bill Hasenjaeger, CGTech’s Product Marketing Manager. “We recognize that some customers will not get training by a CGTech Technical Support Engineer. The Quick Start sessions provide another option for training that is available anytime it is convenient for our customer.”

Sessions are currently available to current customers using CATIA V5 by Dassault Systems, NX CAM by Siemens PLM Software, Creo Parametric by PTC, Mastercam by CNC Software, hyperMILL by Open Mind and Edgecam by Vero Group. Additional training sessions are currently being prepared for users of Cimatron’s GibbsCAM, DP Technology’s ESPRIT, Delcam’s PowerMILL, and Vero Group’s Surfcam.

Each of the Quick Start guides follows the same structure. The user will first learn how to output CAD/CAM manufacturing data from their CAM system to VERICUT. Next, they learn how to monitor their simulation session and then inspect the cut stock. The final session shows how to create VERICUT process documents.
