Gene Granata, Vericut product manager at CGTech, describes Vericut’s new additive module. Set to be available publicly at the end of September, it can be used in a hybrid simulation along with subtractive technologies. With this and other technology, CGTech works with customers and tech partners to solve AM challenges, such as accurate laser cladding and material deposition, detecting collisions between the machine and additive part, and finding errors, voids and misplaced material. Mr. Granata explains how people who already own Vericut can acquire the additive capability. “This is a turning point” for additive, where “a lot of people are coming into the fold,” he says.
