3D Systems has enhanced the GibbsCAM 2016 Classroom and Student Editions, now with free access to GibbsCAM VoluMill, the high-speed machining (HSM) utility used in manufacturing. The 2016 Education Editions include both VoluMill Wireframe and VoluMill Solids to ensure that students can gain exposure to the utility before entering the industry. These new additions enable the software to more closely mirror industrial versions of GibbsCAM, which recently began including VoluMill Wireframe as a free option to new licensees.

The Education Editions have the same shop-friendly interface as industrial versions, ensuring that graduating students can be prepared to immediately enter the production environment without having to learn a new or modified interface. The software is designed to be easy to teach, learn and use, making class time more productive for instructors and students alike. GibbsCAM Classroom Edition can be licensed for stand-alone and network implementation and is operationally and functionally identical to industrial versions of GibbsCAM. Students can complete any CNC programming tasks required in the industrial environment, including the generation of machine-ready programs through post-processing. The Classroom Edition is complemented and augmented by the Student Edition, which enables the student to work off campus, and use the software’s bidirectional communication for interaction with the Classroom Edition.
