Next Wave Automation Introduces Virtual Zero Unlimited

Software allows CNC Shark users unlimited material mapping reference points - just named Visionary Award finalist.

Next Wave Automation is introducing its patent-pending new software, Virtual Zero Unlimited, on July 17, 2019, at the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas.

The new Virtual Zero Unlimited software allows a user to now map the entire surface of their material by taking an unlimited number of reference points. The program then uses these points to auto adjust the G-code to conform to the actual surface of that material.

Virtual Zero Unlimited eliminates problems caused by warped or bowed work pieces and allows the user to maintain a constant cutting depth on oddly or intricately shaped projects which would usually require the creation of a CAD 3D model.

AWFS has just announced that Virtual Zero Unlimited is a Visionary Award finalist.

“We are thrilled about being named a finalist for Virtual Zero Unlimited,” says Tim Owens, Next Wave Automation’s founder and CEO. “We’re continually innovating and providing solutions that are otherwise out of reach for most small woodshops and hobbyists, so we’re honored that our work on this software has been recognized.”

Next Wave Automation will be demonstrating its new Virtual Zero Unlimited software at the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas, July 17-20 in Booth #7978
