Verification software module
By Mary Del
SolutionWare Corporation has released a software module designed to verify CNC programs on the computer before putting them on the machine. The new integrated Solid-Verify module works with SolutionWare’s GeoPath and MazaCAM CAD/CAM software. It is available as an upgrade for existing customers or as an option on SolutionWare’s GeoPath and MazaCAM software packages. Unlike SolutionWare’s previous solid-verify product, which was a standalone application, the new integrated Solid-Verify module works from within GeoPath and MazaCAM software. This tight integration with the main CAD/CAM software interface allows users to get more done with fewer mouse-clicks, which saves time, the company says. The integrated Solid-Verify module shows cuts, rapid crashes, tools and holders, differently shaped tools and user-defined tools on the computer before going to the CNC. At the same time, unwanted rapid moves through the part are identified on the computer screen. Coupled with MazaCAM, Integrated Solid-Verify makes it possible for users of all generations of Mazatrol controls – from legacy to the very latest – to perform solid verification for 3D mill, two-axis lathe, and live Y-axis applications. Coupled with GeoPath, Integrated Solid-Verify makes it possible for users of any standard G-code machine to do solid verification for 3D mill, two-axis lathe, and live Y-axis applications.
