The New Generation of Composites Applications
Latest Composites Release
Enhanced Graphics Display
VCS 9.0’s greatly enhanced image quality provides sharper, clearer views that make it easier to spot problems and imperfections in composite parts. Get optimal performance running simulations in a single view. Switch seamlessly between Workpiece, Machine, or Profile views, or view layouts for optimal viewing.
Any of VCS’s major functions, such as Section, and X-Caliper, can be used in any view which streamlines the verification effort and increases productivity.
Appearance settings accompany the “Color” option for components and models, and can be used to add realism to objects in VCS. A list of common materials is provided and can be used to make NC machines, fixtures, and tooling to look more lifelike, as well as easier to identify errors or incorrect placement of tape.
Enhanced Translucency and New Stock/Design View
Translucency can be applied to machine components or the form model, then adjusted by the Translucency slider on the View tab. Translucency can also be set individually via the aforementioned Appearance Settings.
Enhanced Reviewer App
VCS’s Reviewer application is powered by the same enhanced graphics engine featured in VCS Verification, and users will also immediately notice the dramatic boost in performance!
New Section Window
The new Section window is easier to use with dynamic section plane locations and angle adjustments. More options are available for how section planes are defined, including easy ¾ “wedge” section views, control over which object(s) are sectioned, and which view show sectioned objects.
