GibbsCAM is offering a machine simulation option, which complements GibbsCAM cut part rendering process simulation functionality. It allows the entire machine tool motion of a CNC program to be validated in an accurate simulation.

GibbsCAM Machine Simulation adds support for turning, mill/turn and multitasking machine tools. Machine tool models can be built and set up like the real machine tool, then the CNC program is simulated to validate it prior to running the CNC program on the machine tool. Not only does this allow potential programming errors to be visually identified before they become very expensive mistakes out on the shop floor, but program inefficiencies can also be recognized and addressed.
