GibbsCAM®

GibbsCAM®

The GibbsCAM® product family provides powerful, yet easy to use, programming support for 2-through 5-axis milling, high speed machining, turning, mill/turning, multi-task machining, swiss, tombstone machining and wire-EDM CNC machine tools.

An intuitive graphical user interface makes GibbsCAM® easy to learn and very efficient, maximizing user productivity. Integrated simulation allows processes to be visually verified and corrected before becoming costly mistakes out on the shop floor.

Comprehensive manufacturing modeling capability for wireframe, surface and solid geometry supports manipulation of part geometry for manufacturing. While outputting machine-specific G-code, users have the choice of using GibbsCAM’s template-based post processor utility, or use one of GibbsCAM’s what-you-see-is-what-you-machine factory supplied post processors.

GibbsCAM® add-in for Autodesk® Inventor® software allows part models to be transferred directly to GibbsCAM® from within the Inventor session. Associativity between geometry, process and toolpath allows easy updates to accommodate incremental changes.

Benefits:

  • Directly reads Inventor model files
  • Directly transfers model files from Inventor to GibbsCAM for machining
  • Updates machining process automatically when an Inventor file model is revised.

Target Industries:  Aerospace, Auto & Transportation, Energy & Oil, Medical

Compatibility:  Autodesk® Inventor® 2014, Autodesk® Inventor® 2013, Autodesk® Inventor® 2012, Autodesk® Inventor® 2011, Autodesk® Vault 2014, Autodesk® Vault 2013

Integration:
GibbsCAM opens IPT files, preserves attributes to simplify machining the model directly, and automatically updates machining processes when Inventor updates the model, for efficient and reliable CNC programming.
