Vericut Composite Paths for Engineering (VCPe) from CGTech gives designers and engineers of composite parts access to the same software tools that NC programmers use to create NC program paths subsequently used in the workshop to lay up a composite part. The tool can be used to create and experiment with various automated fiber placement (AFP) path options and evaluate the effects AFP manufacturing has on a composite part’s design intent. VCPe reads CATIA V5, NX, STEP, or ACIS surface models. It also reads FiberSim, CATIA V5, NX, or other external ply geometry and information. It then adds material to fill the plies according to user-specified manufacturing standards and requirements. Layup paths are linked to form specific layup sequences.
