Vero Software announce the release of VISI 15

Vero Software Plc, a leading supplier of design and manufacturing solutions for the mould & die industries are pleased to announce the immanent release of its flagship product VISI 15.


VISI 15 sees the introduction of many new features including an updated user interface with new icons, major enhancements to the graphics capability including reflection rendering, hole feature texture mapping, perspective view, dynamic sections and true 1:1 scale viewing. Updated surface technology includes new tools for complex surface draping through curves or point clouds and a new large surface offset for the automotive industry.


N sided patch, edge manipulation and new body memory diagnostics ensure that even the most complex data from multiple CAD system can be handled with ease. Direct interfaces to all major systems including Catia and UG have been updated to include support for faceted solid data and multiple model variations.


Enhancements to the 2D plotview and annotation include rendered view creation, dynamic section editing, custom field management, chamfer dimensioning and a new automatic 4 direction ordinate aligned dimension.


Finally for the CAD, one major enhancement and concept change is the introduction of a parametric page. This new working environment will allow the operator to create parametric components using parametric tools and subsequently load the geometry into the free-form modelling environment. This new concept will provide complete flexibility and introduce the benefits of parametric modelling without the traditional constraints.


For the CAM side, a new option is available during post processing to optimise the NC code feedrate when entering large areas of stock. This option is constantly comparing the amount of material removed against the actual mechanical forces applied to the tool. The result of this sophisticated volume comparison tool provides an improved toolpath, extending the cutting life of the tool while using the machine safely at the upper limits of its performance regime.


A new combined finishing strategy has been included for finishing steep and shallow areas in one toolpath. This strategy allows steep areas to be machined using a constant Z method and shallow areas to be machined using a 3D constant stepover method. This strategy operates as a one stop finishing toolpath. The kinematic simulation has also been improved to manage material removal. The cutting tool, holders, jigs and fixtures can all be checked when running the kinematic display and any potential gouges on the toolpath against stock, tool or any other component on the machine tool will be graphically highlighted.


The dedicated mould and progressive die applications have also updated to include over 60 new parametric library components including lifters and flexible up and away units. New interactive punch management and strip control combined with solid group enhancements ensure that Vero provide cutting edge technology for the mould and die industry from initial design and engineering modelling, through production preparation and into toolpath programming and machine code generation including areas not touched by other vendors, such as progressive die design.


“For the latest release we pledged to significantly improve the operation and quality of the VISI products and these latest developments are evidence that the product has gone from strength to strength,” explains Gerard O’Driscoll, Development Director. “We are very confident that the advances made by the Vero development team will provide very real benefits to all manufacturing environments.”


Vero Software Plc is represented in over 40 countries by more than 80 distributors and, in addition to its extensive dealer network, has its own direct sales operations in the UK, France, Italy, USA, Japan, China and Canada.
