GibbsCAM for Education
Investment in technical education is extremely important to Gibbs, because the future of manufacturing depends on it. Due to the shortage of manufacturing professionals, Gibbs is dedicated to supporting educational institutions, including trade schools, colleges and universities, with NC programming solutions that make teaching and learning CNC programming easy, interesting and economical. We offer two editions of GibbsCAM, specialized for education. The Classroom Edition is operationally identical to the popular industrial version, ensuring that GibbsCAM-trained students are ready for industry. GibbsCAM’s ease of learning, ease of use and high reliability greatly reduce training time and effort. As a result, instructors spend much less time resolving problems, and have more time to teach, while students gain extra time for hands-on experience. An extremely economical, personal Student Edition complements the Education Edition, making student work portable from class to home, and vice versa, further encouraging and accelerating the learning process. Both editions include PDF documentation with examples. GibbsCAM makes CAM technology easier and more enjoyable to teach, more fun to learn, and more productive for educators and students. Once you have experienced GibbsCAM’s natural and intuitive graphical interface, you will understand why hundreds of other educational institutions and thousands of students find the software exciting. You will also understand why GibbsCAM students usually win when they participate in design-through-machining competitions. It is time to integrate this prize-winning software in your curriculum and become a leader in producing students ready for production manufacturing.

This video demonstrates the toolpath a student created from using GibbsCAM to CNC Machine all components and produce a Longboard Skateboard.
This clip demonstrates how the students of MAC-248 class at Nash Community College machined a scale replica of the Julian B. Fenner Memorial Clock. The clock was programmed using GibbsCAM and machined using a Haas VM-3 with 5-axis trunnion, Haas ST-20 Series Turning Center with live tooling and a NCC Robotic Cell Fadal 3016 with 4th axis.
