Vero Software says its new nesting engine in Alphacam 2018 R2 provides faster calculation times, along with improved feedback and graphics while using proprietary technology. In this version, Parametric Rules have been migrated to C# and have an enhanced GUI and functionality. It features an intersecting geometry function that allows a user to select a previously created geometry to define the order of geometries or toolpaths. The Face Milling Cycle has been enhanced, and is now part of Alphacam’s Core Functionality. The Parametric Sketcher has an updated UI and the Sketcher's geometry creation tools have been improved. Two separate values can now be displayed with enhancements to Alphacam's dimensioning system and user-defined suffixes.
