GibbsCAM Options

GibbsCAM Options

Powerfully Simple, Simply Powerful

GibbsCAM is designed to simplify the complex. It has a modeless, graphical interface that lets the user perform any function at any time, without pursuing a seemingly endless hierarchy of menus. Users can quickly jump from toolpath verification to part design or tool definition and back. Icons that reflect shop procedures make operations easy to identify and fast to navigate. These features make learning fast and easy for the new user and highly efficient for the experienced.

Milling and Turning Options

 
Production Milling

Production Milling

GibbsCAM Production Milling supports 2-axis through simple 3-axis wireframe machining with full functionality for contouring, pocketing with unlimited bosses/islands, thread milling, face milling, 2D/3D spiral creation, drilling with support for many drill cycles, tapping, and boring. Simple 4th-axis positioning is also supported. More »

GibbsCAM Production Turning

Production Turning

The base module of GibbsCAM's turning product line, Production Turning supports 2-axis machining of wireframe geometry with full functionality for contouring, automatic roughing, plunge roughing, drilling, threading, and tapping. When combined with Production Milling live tooling is supported. More »

Advanced CS (Coordinate Systems)

Advanced CS (Coordinate Systems)

An incremental option to Production Milling or Turning, Advanced CS (Coordinate Systems) supports defining local coordinate systems in any orientation/location in addition to the default standard primary plane coordinate systems.

 

Solids Options

 
Solids Import

Solids Import

The entry level module of GibbsCAM's solids-based machining capabilities, Solids Import supports importing and orienting solid models. Wireframe geometry is then extracted for machining using Production Milling or Turning. Solids can be sliced to generate machineable geometry. More »

2.5D Solids

2.5D Solids

The mid-level module of solid-based machining capabilities, 2.5D Solids supports directly machining 2.5D solids. Basic solid modeling functionality is also provided to build models from scratch, modify existing models, or solidify surface models into solids. More »

SolidSurfacer

SolidSurfacer

The most comprehensive of solid-based machining capabilities, SolidSurfacer provides advanced surface/solids modeling functionality and 3-axis multi-surface and solids machining. SolidSurfacer is ideally suited for mold cavities, cores, dies, aerospace, medical and automotive components. SolidSurfacer is more powerful than ever with Advanced 3D with High-Speed Machining, and provides toolpath tailored for high-speed machining and hard-metal cutting. More »

 

Multi-Axis Milling Options

 
GibbsCAM Production Turning

Polar & Cylindrical Milling

Extending standard 3-axis milling functions, Polar & Cylindrical Milling drives one rotary and two linear axes to achieve 3-axis toolpath. For use on machines with a rotary axis to enable wrapped geometry, cylindrical and polar rotary milling, and rotary repeats. With this option, all 2D mill processes – contour, pocket, drill, etc. – may be applied to a cylinder. The tool is kept on the centerline of rotation; as a result, there is no control of wall angles or tool engagement. More »

Radial Milling

Radial Milling

Radial Milling drives one rotary and three linear axes to achieve 4-axis toolpath. It provides a roughing and a finishing mill process for off-centerline “Y-axis” rotary machining, allowing control of wall angles and tool engagement. More »

5-Axis

5-Axis

5-Axis supports simultaneous 4- and 5-axis machining with various tool types. In combination with the MTM module, it also supports sophisticated multi-task machines with live tooling on articulated heads.

5-Axis Porting

5-Axis Porting

An addition to the 5-Axis module, 5-Axis Porting is optimized to simplify machining ports, manifolds, throttle bodies and any tubular openings that change shape and curvature from end to end. The specialized interface is condensed to use only the settings needed for porting operations, making programming much easier and faster. More »

5-Axis MultiBlade

5-Axis MultiBlade 

An addition to the 5-Axis module, 5-Axis MultiBlade is optimized for programming machining centers and multi-tasking machines to make turbomachinery parts. It simplifies machining blisks, blings and impellers – parts with blades. Its specialized and condensed interface allows easy selection of geometry without having to prepare the model. More »

 

Additional Options

 
MTM (Multi-Task Machining)

MTM (Multi-Task Machining)

With its intuitive graphical interface, MTM supports creating optimal programs for complex multi-turret, multi-spindle multi-tasking machine tools which fully utilize their capabilities. Factory-built posts ensure error-free G-code output. More »

TMS (Tombstone Management System)

TMS (Tombstone Management System)

Building upon basic capability in Production Milling, TMS provides an environment designed specifically for programming multiple parts fixtured on tombstones. Once the parts are positioned on the tombstone, corresponding program offsets and rotations are automatically generated. More »

Machine Simulation

Machine Simulation

An extension to GibbsCAM's integrated Cut Part Rendering visualization/verification capability, Machine Simulation uses animated machine tool models to identify any program errors before they cause costly mistakes on the shop floor.

Wire-EDM

Wire-EDM

Programming 2- thru 4-axis Wire-EDM machines is supported by Wire-EDM. Program optimization and machine efficiency is ensured through the use of advanced technologies such as EPAK settings and machining strategies. More »

VoluMill™ for GibbsCAM

VoluMill™ For GibbsCAM

VoluMill™ for GibbsCAM offers expanded milling solutions for cutting methods that maximize material removal rates by building ultra-high performance toolpath (UHPT) that optimally control tool cutting factors to maximize efficiency. More »
