New in GibbsCAM 2012+
Dramatically improved performance and new optimized simulator for Multiaxis machining. Additionally many improvements in both Mill, Turn, 3D, 4 & 5axis and MTM.
Upto 33 times faster!
GibbsCAM 2012+ offers great value for new and existing users. The simulation/rendering engine in GibbsCAM 2012+ now uses both multicore processor techolgy and multithreading. This technology shortens calculation time dramatically. Simulation of machining is now upto 33x faster, depending on hardware configuration and part complexity. Faster calculation and simulation reduces waiting times and cuts programming costs.
GibbsCAM 2012+ now includes the new ”MultiAxisRender” option free of charge. This option allows for more accurate simualtion for both RotaryMilling and 4/5axis machining. Improved collision simulation and calculation also reduces the risc of collisions in the machinetool.
RADIAL MILLING (4-axis)
Improvements in radial milling include the option to create soft and unsegmented spiralmoves by using the machinetools linear and circular interpolation methods. The advantage with this type of toolpath is that the CNCprogram code is simplified dramatically which also results in better partfinish and in some situations shorter machining time.
NEW MILLING STRATEGIES
GibbsCAM 2012+ includes new and improved strategies for pocketing with open walls, thin walls and shallow area pocketing, and produce highly efficient G-code. These new functions also include support for restmachining.
Updated support for all major CAD systems including a number of importsettings include: ACIS, CATIA (v4 and v5), DXF, IGES, PARASOLID (x-t, xmt and binary), SOLID EDGE, VDA-FS, CREO ELEMENTS/PRO (Pro/Engineer), STEP AP203/AP214, RHINOCEROS, KEYDREATOR, AUTODESK DWG, INVENTOR, STL, SOLIDWORKS and SIEMENS NX. With our CAD add-in's you can transfer models directly from inside your favourite CAD system - CimatronE, Autodesk Inventor, KeyCreator, Rhinoceros, Solid Edge och SolidWorks - into GibbsCAM for direct machining.
