A new mold tool module, based on the company's Assembly-Ng technology, provides flexibility when con- structing supplier and nonstandard tool configurations. Customizable templates, including the management of blank and pre-drilled plates, enable tool layout creation and editing at any design stage. The reverse engineering suite enables users to load a point cloud from an external file and create an optimized mesh with refining and smoothing options. Users can also create project design and manufacturing technical reports within the system's snapshot man- ager using data captured throughout the project. Improvements in prog- ress strip development and blank prediction include the ability to manage con- straints of specific faces of a blanked component. Designers who want to blank specific areas of a model for step-by-step stage unfolding can define the face constraint in X, Y or both directions. In addition, the development time of a 3D strip design is reduced by enhanced strip layout management with double component geometry. CAM developments include faster geometry preparation and a 2.5- axis chamfering strategy, which provides intelligent approach and retract points, advanced obstacle manage- ment and improved speed. The CAM navigator's user interface shows build process status on the oper- ation itself, enabling users to switch off the process manager if required. Updated tool sheet reports enable users to benefit from the snapshot manager. Data can also be exported to CSV files for external use. A Visi-to-PC-DMIS interface enables PC-DMIS to read the native Visi CAD file directly with previously defined annotation and points. They are loaded automatically into PC-DMIS and can be used for quality control. | Visi by Vero Software | 248-922-9293
