Training Schedule

CGTech training is designed to provide you with all the information and practical experience necessary to use VERICUT effectively. These courses are suited to anyone interested in performing NC program verification, including CAD/CAM users, NC programmers, and machinists.

VERICUT Verification Course Overview

Day 1

Basic NC Program Simulation & Verification

This course introduces users to the basics of NC program verification. Following an overview of the graphical user interface and functionality, you’ll learn how to run a project in VERICUT. Special emphasis will be placed on how to detect and locate errors in NC programs. This course will also show you how to analyze the cut part by using many of VERICUT’s built-in analysis features, including the ability to compare the cut stock to the design data.

Day 2

Job Configuration

Day two will expand on the first day and shows how to configure a job in VERICUT. We’ll cover configuring multiple setup projects, advanced modeling and assembly techniques, and defining tool shapes. You’ll learn how to use coordinate systems, subroutines and work offsets. We’ll also teach how to define and position the stock model, and orient the models on the machine.

Day 3


Day three builds on what you learned in the first two days and shows how to integrate VERICUT in your manufacturing process. Topics include using VERICUT-to-CAD/CAM interfaces and how to customize reports for your specific requirements. The afternoon will be a chance for you to delve deeper into VERICUT features and will give you an opportunity to work on projects with the instructor’s assistance. Some topics may include: setting up and simulating your own files, advanced tool configuration, and NC optimization.

VERICUT Machine & Control Building Course

The VERICUT Machine & Control Building Class is intended for experienced VERICUT users. It is assumed that attendees already have a good working knowledge of VERICUT’s user interface and basic verification techniques. The class builds on your existing foundation of knowledge to advise on proper techniques for configuring VERICUT machines, controls, and master project files to be used by all users at your company.


Day 1:
Machine Building Introduction

This course introduces users to the basics of building a VERICUT Machine Configuration (VMC). Following an overview of the machine building concepts, you’ll learn how to layout the machine kinematics and then add 3D models to the VERICUT machine. On day one you will see how to build 3-, 4- and 5-axis milling machines and also a 2-axis lathe.

Day 2:
Control Building Introduction

Day two of this course will concentrate on the configuration of the VERICUT control. Following an overview of the control building concepts, you’ll learn how to customize a control to simulate how various G-Code words and data formats will be processed by VERICUT. We’ll cover how to: configure spindle logic for milling and mill/turn machines, customize a control to generate additional error messages, configure rotary behavior, and other control specific options.

Day 3:
Advance Machine Building

Day three builds on what you learned in the first two days and shows how to incorporate machine auxiliary components to your VMC. Topics include tool chain configuration, milling head attachment, pallet changers, and tailstocks. On this day you will also learn how to use VERICUT’s many trouble-shooting tools to assist you in the configuration of your machine and control. You will end the day with probing simulation sessions and file management suggestions.

Day 4:
Machine/Control Workshop

Day four is a workshop, where you will work on your own projects with an instructor’s assistance. On this day you will learn how to find and utilize the information to build an accurate VMC machine/control simulation.

VERICUT Force Optimization Course

The VERICUT Force Optimization class is intended to illustrate how VERICUT software can be leveraged to create an optimized program derived from the original posted NC Code. The resulting program can improve performance, shorten machine cycle times, improve tool life, and minimize wear and tear on the machine tool. While all are welcome, this class is intended for users with a general knowledge of the core VERICUT product.

This class is from 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM on two successive days for a total of 8 hours per class.

»The training program was very well laid out, thorough, and easy to comprehend. The trainer’s knowledge of the product was amazing. At the end of the week I had all the confidence in the world to go back to work and start implementing my new skills. I would recommend CGTech training to anyone.«
Alex Gioultouridis - Rand Technologies
»Just wanted to let you know I verified and optimized my first part Monday afternoon. The Mastercam interface worked great and was a huge time savings. I was able to optimize the nc file for a 38.98% improvement in cycle time. The optimized file is currently running on our Milltronics BR50 and is running perfect. The boss is very happy and we are looking forward to using this new tool on everything. I have to say this was the best training course I’ve ever taken…. very good job showing us a lot in short time.«
