5-Axis MultiBlade is an addition to GibbsCAM 5-Axis Milling, optimized for programming machining centers and multi-tasking machines (MTMs) to make turbomachinery parts. It simplifies machining blisks, blings and impellers – parts with blades. Its specialized and condensed interface allows easy selection of geometry without having to prepare the model.
An extension to GibbsCAM's integrated Cut Part Rendering visualization/verification capability, Machine Simulation uses animated machine tool models to identify any program errors before they cause costly mistakes on the shop floor.
Building upon basic capability in Production Milling, TMS(Tombstone Management System) provides an environment designed specifically for programming multiple parts fixtured on tombstones. Once the parts are positioned on the tombstone, corresponding program offsets and rotations are automatically generated.
The most comprehensive of GibbsCAM's solid-based machining capabilities, SolidSurfacer® provides advanced surface/solids modeling functionality and 3-axis multi-surface and solids machining. SolidSurfacer is ideally suited for mold cavities, cores, dies, aerospace, medical and automotive components. SolidSurfacer is more powerful than ever with Advanced 3D with High-Speed Machining, and provides toolpath tailored for high-speed machining and hard-metal cutting.
The mid-level module of GibbsCAM's solid-based machining capabilities, 2.5D Solids supports directly machining 2.5D solids. Basic solid modeling functionality is also provided to build models from scratch, modify existing models, or solidify surface models into solids.
The entry level module of GibbsCAM's solids-based machining capabilities, Solids Import supports importing and orienting solid models. Wireframe geometry is then extracted for machining using Production Milling or Turning. Solids can be sliced to generate machineable geometry
The base module of GibbsCAM's turning product line,Production Turning supports 2-axis machining of wireframe geometry with full functionality for contouring, automatic roughing, plunge roughing, drilling, threading, and tapping. When combined with Production Milling live tooling is supported.
GibbsCAM Production Milling supports 2-axis through simple 3-axis wireframe machining with full functionality for contouring, pocketing with unlimited bosses/islands, thread milling, face milling, 2D/3D spiral creation, drilling with support for many drill cycles, tapping, and boring. Simple 4th-axis positioning is also supported.
GibbsCAM is designed to simplify the complex. It has a modeless, graphical interface that lets the user perform any function at any time, without pursuing a seemingly endless hierarchy of menus. Users can quickly jump from toolpath verification to part design or tool definition and back. Icons that reflect shop procedures make operations easy to identify and fast to navigate. These features make learning fast and easy for the new user and highly efficient for the experienced.
Advanced CS (Coordinate Systems)
An incremental option to Production Milling or Turning, Advanced CS (Coordinate Systems) supports defining local coordinate systems in any orientation/location in addition to the default standard primary plane coordinate systems.
Available beginning with the shipment of GibbsCAM 2015, Adveon for GibbsCAM is a quick and secure way of creating and exporting tool assemblies into GibbsCAM. Utilizing the data standard ISO 13399, Adveon for GibbsCAM allows you to work with tools from any supplier using that standard, assuring the accuracy of all geometrical information. Develop your own library by picking the tools you use in your daily work, create an overview, and maintain your assortment. Finally, create your assemblies and view the result instantly in 2D and 3D. Assemblies are available for immediate use upon launching GibbsCAM.Learn More:
Extending standard 3-axis milling functions, Polar & Cylindrical Milling drives one rotary and two linear axes to achieve 3-axis toolpath. For use on machines with a rotary axis to enable wrapped geometry, cylindrical and polar rotary milling, and rotary repeats. With this option, all 2D mill processes – contour, pocket, drill, etc. – may be applied to a cylinder. The tool is kept on the centerline of rotation; as a result, there is no control of wall angles or tool engagement.
