Powerfully Simple. Simply Powerful.
GibbsCAM is a powerful, yet easy to use, modular CAM system supporting 2- through 5-axis milling, turning, mill/turning, high speed machining, multi-task simultaneous machining, Swiss, tombstone machining and wire-EDM. Specifically tuned for manufacturing, GibbsCAM's graphical user interface enables easy geometry creation, toolpath generation, process visualization and post processing.
GibbsCAM's broad range of exchange options allows it to receive data from any CAD system. Integrated 2D, 2.5D, 3D wireframe, surface, and solid modeling capabilities are provided. Full associativity provides flexibility to make modifications, automatically updating programs. Integrated process simulation provides real-time display avoiding costly mistakes on the machine. NC programs are generated by a generic, template-based post processor, modifiable by users, or post customized by Gibbs.
GibbsCAM is certified under the Autodesk Inventor Certified Application Program, is a Solid Edge Certified Select application, and is a SolidWorks Certified CAM Application. GibbsCAM is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows Vista, each being certified by Microsoft.

For over thirty years, Gibbs and Associates has been a leader in providing GibbsCAM® cutting edge CAD/CAM technology, while maintaining its signature ease-of-use and productivity. “Powerfully Simple. Simply Powerful.” is the guiding philosophy at Gibbs. Gibbs’ goal is to introduce new programming solutions for CNC machine tools technologies and new ways of working that makes manufacturers’ machining easier and their businesses more profitable. To achieve this goal, Gibbs creates tools that are naturally intuitive, graphically interactive, extremely visual, associative, and enjoyable to use.
Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM® software for programming CNC machine tools and a Cimatron company, today announced that it has granted Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) a network license of twenty-five seats of GibbsCAM software and post processor library, which, when combined with first year maintenance, which was also granted, is valued at almost $510,000.
The software includes functionality to open CAD models from their native format file, modify and prepare CAD models for machining, and generate, verify, simulate and post process CNC toolpaths for up to 4-axis milling, rotary milling, and multi-axis turning. It will be used for CAD/CAM, CNC programming, and machinist apprenticeship and training classes of the NAIT School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Technology, and for its periodic GibbsCAM-only training classes, the first of which will be offered in April, 2011...
