Gibbs and Associates, a developer of CAM software for thirty years, announces its latest release, GibbsCAM 2013, with numerous productivity enhancements.
GibbsCAM 2013 includes two powerful new options for CNC machining:
- The 5-axis multi-blade option supports simplified and versatile programming of turbo-machinery parts such as impellers, blisks, and turbines.
- The 5-axis porting option provides users with a broad selection of capabilities for programming components with variable internal containment features, such as ports and manifolds.
GibbsCAM 2013 includes enhancements to the entire suite of GibbsCAM software to improve efficiency and profitability. Highlights include improved support for feature-based CNC machining by offering users the versatility to identify, group and machine features while maintaining total process control, and a more powerful "profiler" tool capable of extracting CNC machining boundaries and drives from a model without the need to create, modify or chain curves. Enhancements to geometry creation, turning, contouring, pocketing, and improved Swiss machining support are just a few additional highlights in this robust release.
