Users of CGTech’s Vericut 7.4 software now can import an entire tooling package from the MachiningCloud data platform into the software in one simple step. The verification and simulation software is used to detect CNC programming errors, as well as potential collisions and areas of inefficiency. MachiningCloud is an independent provider of CNC cutting tool and workholding product data.

According to the company, after defining a tooling package on MachiningCloud, users can directly download all the tool assemblies within the package and use it within Vericut with fewer steps compared to manually configuring a tool for use in a simulation session. This prevents users from having to create duplicate tool assembly models for simulation when the tool geometry already exists.

The process is simple: Users build a MachiningCloud job containing specified tool assemblies, export the job to their local computers, import all the tools from the job into Vericut, and simulate using the tool assemblies.
