SPRING Technologies is launching NCSIMUL Player 9, the new version of NCSIMUL Machine 9 viewer, its flagship solution for realistic machining simulation.
NCSIMUL Player is a freely downloadable 3D viewer, enabling users to share their simulated 3D machining jobs quickly and easily, the company says. It allows users to analyze, manipulate, interact with and display their NC programs and machining simulations in real time, block by block or as an end result. The NC information is enriched and accessible via a set of functions that are either brand new or have been overhauled: simulation review, access to 3D functional dimensioning, measurement tool, enriched display (realistic renderings, interaction with the 3D geometry, tool path, rough stock, assembly, clamps, contextual zooms, sections) and an integrated screen capture tool.
NCSIMUL Player is fully compatible with a touch interface. The 3D movies are directly accessible via the "tile" application developed in the Windows 8 Pro environment, providing direct, single-click access to all NC simulation movies available on the network.
The viewing technology is backward compatible and bidirectional compatible between 32- and 64-bit operating systems; the contents of a machining job generated by NCSIMUL Machine down to version 8.9.4 or the associated 3D movie can be displayed native on any 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8 and 7 OS.
The man-machine interface implements Microsoft Windows 8 PRO standards, notably ribbon mode capability. Other key features are intuitive, context-sensitive icons that facilitate use in touch mode, the company says.
