Vericut Review CAM Simulation Software

Vericut Software: The Ultimate Review of CNC Machining Simulation

If you use CNC machines for manufacturing, you need to know about VERICUT software. VERICUT is the leading solution for simulating, verifying, and optimizing NC machining programs on a computer before ever hitting the shop floor.

Word of caution! No matter how great your simulation program is, there is always “Bob” who forgets to remove clamps!

This comprehensive VERICUT review will cover everything you need to know to take your CNC processes to the next level.

What Does VERICUT Do?

Vericut Review Price

In simple terms, VERICUT lets manufacturers simulate CNC machining on a virtual machine instead of wasting time and materials physically proving out programs.

It checks for:

  • Errors in NC code that could break tools or crash machines when cutting.
  • Collisions against fixtures, clamps, workpieces and any machine components.
  • Optimizes programs for faster cycle times and longer tool life.

VERICUT runs the EXACT same G-code and logic as the CNC control – no approximations. So you know your programs run flawlessly when you hit cycle start for real. Many other simulation software run actual NCI code not NC code which is not the same as the actual machine will run and may miss critical toolpaths and possible collisions.

CG Tech claims cutting metal the first time with confidence reduces scrap, saves production time, and improves part quality. VERICUT pays for itself extremely fast. If you have been in machining any amount of time you will know there is no perfect program on the first go, while most critical issues can be reduced like spindle crash you can never account for “Bob” forgetting” to remove clamps or listening, feeling and checking chips to adjust feeds and speeds.

VERICUT Capabilities

VERICUT handles a wider range of manufacturing than any other simulation software:

CNC Machine Simulation

  • Models your exact machines – lathes, mills, robots, fiber placement, etc.
  • Checks for crashes and near-misses during simulation.
  • Confirms new programs work properly before live cutting.

NC Program Verification

  • Finds mistakes like bad coordinates or toolpaths.
  • Measures features and detects errors against CAD models.
  • Captures digital proof that parts match specifications.

Multi-Axis Machining

  • Handles complex 3-5 axis mills, mill-turns, multi-spindle machines, and articulated robots.
  • Verifies head positioning, clearance, and synchronization.
  • Great for aerospace and medical part programming.

Feed Rate Optimization

  • Automatically optimizes programs for faster cycles and better tool life.
  • Maintains ideal chip loads and material removal rates.
  • Handles roughing, finishing, hard and soft materials.

Composites Programming

  • Models composite layup paths for fiber placement and tape laying.
  • Checks steering, gaps, overlaps, layer offsets, and collisions.

Drilling and Fastening

  • Simulates automated drilling and fastening of large assemblies.
  • Verifies right tools used in correct sequence and positions.
  • Great for aircraft and automotive manufacturing.

Automation Interfaces

  • Automates CAD, CAM, and tooling data imports.
