NCSIMUL Simulation Types (and when to use them) | Tutorial Info Icon
Take a look at the 6 different ways to run a simulation inside NCSIMUL that will help you efficiently navigate through your program in every situation. These include automatic pausing of the simulation at collisions, specific G-code codes, after a certain number of executed blocks, at tool changes, and many more. Additionally, see where to execute an automatic comparison of the part model and rough stock, and well as create a file with the removed material stored, to distribute license-free to every PC in the shop.

Copy Stock between Operations in NCSIMUL | Tutorial

Copy Stock between Operations in NCSIMUL | Tutorial

With NCSIMUL it’s possible to carry the resulting stock from any G-code operation into the beginning setup for the next operation, regardless of machine, number of setups, or controller type.
By doing this you are getting a complete picture of the entire machining process, as well as ensuring that you are always machining the result of the true G-code of the previous operation. Simulate, compare, and verify as you always do, knowing that the rest stock is always dynamically updating based on the real life machining conditions.

Section Planes in NCSIMUL | Tutorial

Section Planes in NCSIMUL | Tutorial

Sometimes there are features that are machined internally in a part that can be very difficult to properly inspect before green-lighting them for production. In cases like this, NCSIMUL’s Plane tools can come in very handy. You can slice both the original part model and the finished machined piece down any axis at any angle to get the best view of the machined surfaces. Additionally, you can take measurements, view differentiation in machined surfaces, and export sliced planes. While all of this is occurring, NCSIMUL is always dynamically showing you exactly which line of G-code is responsible for each motion, and how the active tool is positioned while working.

Tolerance Deviation Control (G62 Tilting) in NCSIMUL | Tutorial

Tolerance Deviation Control (G62 Tilting) in NCSIMUL | Tutorial

By using NCSIMUL to verify the post-processed G-code before running the program at the real machine you eradicate the chance that you will see an unexpected motion compared to what your CAM system is showing. This is especially true when setting a tolerance for the post-processor to use when outputting the code. The same machining strategies can produce slightly different toolpaths if these settings are changed, and the only sure-fire way to prove out the program ahead of time is by certifying the true G-code with NCSIMUL.

Setup Change with Automatic Functions

Setup Change with Automatic Functions

If you are running a part with multiple setups and operations, it can be extremely helpful to use the Setup Change function inside NCSIMUL to automatically jump from one process to the next inside the simulation. Additionally, you can output an intermediate stock result to reuse elsewhere, or simply transfer the intermediate stock to the second setup to begin simulating the next operation. With a series of these automatic commands inside NCSIMUL, it makes it easy to visualize and verify the entire creation of a part, from beginning to end.

Creating a Right-Angle Head Tool in NCSIMUL

Creating a Right-Angle Head Tool in NCSIMUL

If you need to create any 3D tools, such as a right-angle head, the process is very easy with NCSIMUL. Simply import your models into the tool library, define the cutting edges and holders, and give the tool some information such as station and number. Then apply the process and watch as it gets loaded directly onto the spindle and is ready for the simulation. Verify tricky angled tooling with NCSIMUL is a huge added bonus to solidifying your process before trying it out of the real machine, saving both time and possible collisions.
