GibbsCAM CAM Software Simplifies Solidworks Programming
3D Systems’ GibbsCAM 12 software is a CAM product that provides integration with Solidworks by directly reading Solidworks part models, preserving features and attributes, and using these to identify, organize and select features for machining.
3D Systems’ GibbsCAM 12 software is a CAM product that provides integration with Solidworks. It directly reads Solidworks part models, preserving features and attributes, and use this to identify, organize and select features for machining even with complex parts with flat areas, pockets, holes and compound holes.
The combination of GibbsCAM 12 and Solidworks provides a complete CAD/CAM system for virtually all manufacturing environments. Whether parts have simple geometry needing only 2.5-axis milling or two-axis turning, or complex geometry requiring use of five-axis machining, MTM or Swiss-type turning centers, the Solidworks GibbsCAM combination accommodates the machining process.
GibbsCAM 12 is a single application, with a single user interface for programming all CNC machines.
The digital revolution is hitting the business of the multiple-spindle automatic machining--in two distinct forms, no less. Twenty-five years after the first wave of digitization in manufacturing (numerical control) its linear descendant, computer numerical control or CNC, is changing the way screw machine shops do business.
Here’s a three-part video series focused on Swiss screw making to help explain the benefits of thread whirling, back turning and broaching while taking into consideration CAM programming, tooling and machine specifications.
An international player in the highly competitive aeronautics, automotive, defense and optical industries makes the most of software for multitasking program verification and optimization.
