Software Enhancements Create Smoother Workflow

3D Systems has announced GibbsCAM 13 - the newest version of its GibbsCAM CAM programming software. This release includes key enhancements throughout the product that further streamline the programming of CNC machining centers. Building from the recent interface improvements, GibbsCAM 13 continues to increase functionality while maintaining intuitive workflow.

New features include:

  • Advancements in turning capabilities include elliptical and eccentric turning. GibbsCAM now allows programming elliptical shapes and non-centerline turning inside the CAM package - eliminating the need for time-consuming calculations and programming on the machine controller.
  • Interpolation turning gives turning capability to any machining center with an orientable spindle, such as 4-axis mills, MTM machines and boring machines -expanding the capabilities of these powerful machines.
  • Linear and rotary broaching programming has been added. Traditionally, broaching has been a hand-programmed or manual process. GibbsCAM 13 allows the programming of broaching routines, eliminating manual coding or extra set-up time.
  • Interface enhancements to GibbsCAM 13 build on those found in GibbsCAM 12. The newest enhancements create a faster, more fluid workflow when programming CNC machines. The ability to stack or group operations, along with a built in G-code editor provides intuitive programming information in a single location.
