Vero Visi What's new in Visi 20?

VISI 20 includes improved collision control, a new feature recognition engine, support for additional tooling forms (barrel cutters, convex tip cutters, radiused chamfer cutters and radiused dove cutter).

visi1Vero Software, a leading provider of CAD/CAM/CAE solutions for the tooling industry, have announced the release of their Mould & Die focused product VISI 20. After a successful series of Customer Update seminars running throughout October, VISI 20 is now available for general distribution.

Version 20 is a substantial release introducing many new features in all areas of the product with continued emphasis on solutions for mould, tool and die makers.

Major graphic enhancements include improved rendering, a programmable dynamic command widget and the ability to fast-view a file before opening to include pan and zoom functionality. In addition, CAD translators have been updated to support Solid Works and Solid Edge assemblies, support for PTC Creo and JTopen B-rep entities.

Significant CAD enhancements include the ability to assign constraints to geometrical bodies (Concentric, Parallel, Coincident, Distance, etc) providing the tools to simulate the real movement of tooling, such as the ability to check for collisions with slides, cams, lifters, etc. A re-designed feature manager and 3D boring chart creates and edits complex holes and pockets as well as recognising features directly from the 3D model or 2D drawing for automated annotation.

visi2User efficiency continues to be a focus for product development, with the process workflow having been improved in a number of areas. This includes the ability to extract wireframe edges and also concatenate and simplify the extracted elements, remove knot points and split the geometry into correctly formatted curves based on angular deviation. Automating the process in this way significantly speeds up high quality surface creation when working with third-party data.

VISI Progress developments include a new tool building engine, improved unfolding and new middle skin functionality for flanging and blanking operations. Other enhancements include a completely rewritten explode tool for 3D assemblies (with the ability to record the explode movements), improved standard component catalogues and continued collaboration with CADENAS.
