VISI CAD/CAM, by Vero Software to be Exhibited at IMTS 2018 Sept. 10-15, Chicago, Ill.
The VISI CAD/CAM solution, by Vero Software, will be shown Sept. 10-15 at International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2018, hosted at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill.
As one of the largest manufacturing trade shows in the world, IMTS is an ideal event for seeing the latest in cutting-edge technologies, networking with industry experts and peers, and learning new methods for increasing productivity.
Visitors to IMTS can learn more about VISI at booth No. 133114, where demonstrations of new product features and upgrades will be available.
VISI now offers a dedicated reverse engineering module within the software’s modeling and machining environment, allowing a points cloud to be loaded and the relative mesh created by setting different options for refining and smoothing.
The reverse engineering module is completely integrated within VISI, which means a point cloud can be loaded from a Hexagon Romer Absolute Arm or an external file to generate the desired, optimized mesh with special tools. This mesh can then be the starting point for creating relative surfaces through the modeling function, or used as it is for machining purposes.
The latest version of VISI contains nearly 250 items of new and enhanced functionality, including updates to the direct modeling capabilities, which provide additional editing for both solids and surfaces.
The new Edit Face means solid bodies can be edited simply by moving or pulling the selected faces, and concentric faces can be automatically selected and edited accordingly. For example, the size of a pocket with holes – or the size of a solid body – can be changed with this new tool quickly and easily.
Enhancements to both Surface Extension and Fill Holes means the designer can work directly on a solid body’s faces and not just on the surfaces, which provides considerable time savings on the solid model’s design and editing phase.
Another new CAM function is Toolpath Mirroring, which copies the current project, mirroring all its toolpath operations. This can be achieved on any 2-axis, 3-axis, 3+2-axis, and 4/5-axis toolpaths generated by VISI. It retains the original cutting directions for all the operations, and is a major time saver for preparing toolpaths on mirrored geometry, which is widely used in the automotive market.
