New Package for NC Simulation

January 2014 toolingtip4Cimatron version 11 features an entirely new package for NC simulation.  One of the selections you have to make when using the new simulator is Standard versus Turbo 3X mode.  The key difference between the two modes is in how they calculate the stock model.  Because the Turbo mode is not available for any 5 axis procedure, it utilizes a simplified stock representation that is significantly faster for 3 axis toolpaths, while still providing for accurate gouge checking to the part, clamps, and tool holder.
