VERICUT 6 by CGTech to Include Native CATIA and ACIS Translation Through Spatial's InterOp Components; Spatial Translators Provide Unparalleled Accuracy for Vericut
Spatial Corp., a Dassault Systèmes company and provider of 3D components, and CGTech, the developer of VERICUT® software, today announced the inclusion of Spatial's InterOp Translators in CGTech's soon-to-be-released VERICUT 6.
"Our customers need to share models between their CAD systems and VERICUT easily," said Bill Hasenjaeger, Product Marketing Manager for CGTech. "This includes importing models into VERICUT for simulation, and quickly having an 'as-cut' finished or in-process model returned to their CAD system. Spatial InterOp Translators give us the ability to make this process easier than ever for our customers, using CATIA V5 and other CAD/CAM systems."
The addition of Spatial's translators allows users of VERICUT 6 to import and export native CATIA V5, ACIS® (SAT), and STEP models. Spatial's access to APIs, as a subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes and as the developer of the 3D ACIS Modeler, enables the company to provide unparalleled accuracy in data translation of CATIA V5 and SAT files through its InterOp line. This technology is accessed through the CAD Model Import and Model Export features of VERICUT 6; Model Export creates CAD models from the VERICUT 'in-process' cut model that is generated by simulating an NC program. The resulting surface or solid model contains as-machined features produced by the NC program.
"Right now, Spatial InterOp Translators provide the most accurate and reliable data translation for CATIA V5 and SAT," said Phil Spreier, InterOp Product Manager for Spatial. "Users of VERICUT 6 can be assured that the models they analyze are precise representations of the originals."
