Vero announces the release update for Edgecam 2017 R2. This release offers nearly fifty items of new and enhanced functionality covering turning, milling, wire EDM, machine configurations, and user experience.
Individually these items each produce time savings, improved performance or enhance the ease of use. Taken together they represent a significant improvement in the overall user experience for our customers.
The new 2017 release of Edgecam introduces a Tombstone module for assembling pre-existing parts on a defined mounting device such as a Tombstone or dowel plate. A simple dialog window enables users to add pre-machined part files, specifying the positions they are to be mounted on the multi-component work-holding device. Once they are assembled, Edgecam automatically merges and rationalizes all machining sequences by tool or index position and optimizing the NC output into sub-routines.
This new feature offers huge time savings, as users no longer need to manually carry out the load, insert, merge and rationalize commands.
