GO Pro Milling
GibbsCAM GO Pro Milling is designed to handle the most exacting of modeling and machining demands for complex mold, tool, and die creation. GibbsCAM GO Pro Milling includes high-level modeling and advanced functionality for machining surfaces and solids.
Tackle complex functions easily with the intuitive GibbsCAM user interface. Use the advanced 3D high-speed machining in GibbsCAM GO Pro Milling to create a toolpath that is ideal for hard metal cutting and for smooth surface finishes.
GO Pro Milling adds a top level to the complete set. The GO Pro Milling package includes these powerful capabilities below to GO Milling and GO Solid Milling features.
Extended Surface Modeling Capabilities
Though parts files are often provided in solid model format, surface modeling is a key capability for programmers. GibbsCAM GO Pro Milling provides extended surface modeling capabilities to handle surface creation or modification. And its powerful surface modeling functionality is easy to use.
Automatic Parting Line Generation
You need to separate mold halves at the extents of the part to ensure that the part can be removed readily. Manually determining where the parting line should be is a very tedious process. With GibbsCAM GO Pro Milling, you can generate the correct parting line automatically and then use it to divide the mold halves easily.
Extract/Heal Features (for Core/Cavity or Electrodes)
Often parts include minor features that get in the way when generating toolpaths. You can suppress these features with the GibbsCAM GO Pro Milling extract/heal feature capability, which removes the feature’s geometry and heals the surrounding area. You can use the solid, which is generated from the suppressed feature, to create cores or electrodes.
You must consider different types of surfaces when machining: the surface that is being machined, the part surfaces not being machined, and any surfaces associated with fixtures. With GibbsCAM GO Pro Milling, you can specify the offset, or how closely the tool comes, for each of these surface types. So, you’re in complete control when generating toolpaths.
3D Projection Machining
Sometimes you want to have direct control of the toolpath over multiple surfaces. You generate the toolpath you want and then you project it onto the surfaces to be machined. The source for the toolpath geometry can be just about anything, including text. GibbsCAM GO Pro Milling provides a powerful capability that allows you to project geometry onto surfaces to generate final toolpath geometry.
Advanced 3D with High-Speed Machining
Advanced 3D with High-Speed Machining (HSM) adds the next level of 3D surface and solid body machining:
- New types of finishing processes
- Support for 3D material only toolpaths
- Enhanced entry/exit control
- Direct machining for faceted bodies such as imported STL files
- Automatic core/cavity detection for inside-out or outside-in determination
- Operation splitting for tool wear and for optimal length out of the holder
- Automatic filleting of a surface to avoid sharp concave corners
- Support for batch toolpath generation
