VISI 2017 R2 - Springback prediction, Safety zone analysis, Model compensation for sheet medal dies
This new feature allows to compute Springback prediction based on reference material and blank calculation. This will provide major benefits to the die market by reducing the time of the design to manufacturing process and by reducing cost of a typical trial and error approach
VISI 2017 R2 - 2D Pocketing
The new 2.5 Axis Pocketing strategy provides toolpath quality improvements, and the ability to machine from a stock model. When the stock model is defined, the Pocketing strategy is able to identify the areas where it is necessary to remove the material and adapt the toolpath to produce passes only where necessary.
VISI 2017 R2 - 2D Waveform
New for 2.5-Axis machining, the Waveform Strategy (previously available in 3D roughing) maintains constant tool cutting load, constant cutting feed rate, and a smooth toolpath which avoids sharp changes in direction.
VISI 2017 R2 - Electrode Machining process
The Electrode machining module automates the electrode design-to-manufacturing process. It benefits from all the relevant electrode data added by the operator during the electrode creation phase, while also removing the potential risk of possible input error.
VISI 2017 R2 - Updated Dynamic Incremental Stock
The enhancements achieved on the Roughing and Remachining strategy provides a more reliable and higher quality toolpath. The residual material algorithm has been enhanced to provide a better quality residual area output. The result is an improved toolpath quality and an optimised toolpath in reference to the residual area computation.
VISI 2017 R2 - Shank Clearance
VISI 2017 R2 adds new functionality to support clearance on the tool and shank
