Virtual Machine (VM), called also machine simulator, is 3D computer model which is geometrically and functionally the same like real machine (CNC machine tool or robot). They are used mainly for different kind of syntax errors and collision detection in CNC programs. Whole simulation process is also called Virtual Machining. This kind of off-line programming require CAM software support to generate tool paths and transform them to machine commands. The most advanced virtual machining software
