Visi 2016 R1 from Vero Software includes developments in CAD, CAM and mold functionality, with continued emphasis on solutions for mold, tool and die makers. The product naming convention also explains the move to a new six-month release cycle, with two versions planned per year.

Major graphic enhancements to the release include an updated GUI with quick access toolbars, live icon combinations on the mouse, improved hidden line removal and geometry selection by a “free-shape” brush. In addition, CAD translators have been updated to support the latest third-party CAD formats, including Inventor 2016, layer categories for NX and attribute hole mapping for Catia V5.

Visi Mold developments include improved cooling channel management with support for solid groups, CAD transformations, and updated catalogue components such as plugs, connectors and baffles. Additional enhancements include a new tool to produce lubrication grooves and a rewritten database tool to manage and edit the 3D standard element libraries.
