Vero Software’s Visi 2017 R1, distributed in North America by TST Tooling Software, includes developments in CAD and CAM functionality designed to give users additional speed and quality throughout design processes.
CAD enhancements include a faster picking process with support for a dynamic “drag-and-drop” function; dynamic zoom to and from an area on the screen by holding down the space bar; intelligent chaining for joining wireframe elements together; and a single mouse click to confirm commands, instead of a keystroke.
For CAM, an update to geometry management means individual pieces are no longer limited by a specific project. Everything is now linked to the operation, not the project, and all geometry is managed interactively, so that users can pick the specific pieces or faces they want to machine.
