UPGRADES
Production Milling Upgrade (addition to Production Turn only)
Create 2-, 2.5- and simple 3-axis geometry. Generate 2-, 2.5- and simple 3-axis toolpaths with no air cutting; includes drilling, contouring, and pocketing. Post Process to  multiple environments. Upload and download to any CNC machine with RS-232 (requires wiring).

Production Turning Upgrade (addition to Production Mill only)
Quickly create 2-axis geometry. Generate 2-axis toolpaths with no air cutting and automatic clearance calculation. Post Process to multiple environments. Upload and down load to any CNC machine with RS-232 (requires wiring).

OPTIONS
Advanced CS
Multiple coordinate systems for modeling and 4- and 5-axis rotary positioning. Requires Production Milling, Production Turning, or Mill/Turn. Requires Advanced Mill post processor upgrade for 4- and 5-axis positioning.

Solids Import
Import solid model designs from Parasolid and IGES format CAD files with ability to machine with mill functionality. Also includes the direct read of SolidWorks and Solid Edge model files. ACIS SAT read is optional. Advanced CS is required for full functionality.

2.5D Solids
Directly create or import, edit and machine 2.5D solid parts. Includes automated feature recognition for holes. Highquality toolpath maintains analytic elements. Requires either Production Milling or Production Turning and Advanced CS and Solids Import options.

SolidSurfacer®
Create and machine 3-axis solid and surface part models. Import Parasolid and IGES CAD files with ability to repair and modify. Generate automated roughing and finishing cycles with gouge-free toolpaths. Requires Produciton Milling, Advanced CS, Solids Import and 2.5 Solids options.

CutDATA™
Over 71,000 machining recommendations for feeds and speeds for use with Material Database; capability for Production Milling and Production Turning, and works with all packages.

Rotary Mill
Simultaneously drive one rotary axis (A, B, or C), with X. Includes the ability to wrap a geometry shape around a cylinder via rotary axis interpolation, keeping the tool on YO, and rotary face milling for mill-turn machines. Supports Polar (mill-turn) and Cylindrical (mill or mill-turn) interpolation functions for controls with these functions. Requires a Rotary Mill post upgrade.

4-Axis
4-Axis simultaneously drives one rotary axis (A, B, or C) with X, Y, and/or Z. Supports Y-axis off-center milling for radial prismatic parts defined by solid models or 3D geometry. Requires a 4-Axis/5-Axis post upgrade.

5-Axis
5-Axis simultaneously drives two rotary axes (A, B, and/or C) with X, Y, and/or Z. Supports freeform 3D solids and geometry (impellers, etc.). Requires 2.5D Solids or SolidSurfacer®, and a 4-Axis/5-Axis post upgrade.

MTM™ - Multi-Task Machining (3 levels)
Allows sub- and multiple spindles, multiple tool groups/turrets and advanced turning capabilities. Requires Production Turning and Multi-Task Machining Post. Also requires Production Milling and appropriate options for live tooling.

  • Level 1: Supports single flow operations (sub-spindle, B-axis, bar feeder, parts catcher and tailstock)
  • Level 2: Supports dual flow operations (typically 2 turret CNC machines)
    Upgrade from Level 1 to Level 2:
  • Level 3: Multiple flow operations (typically more than 2 turret CNC machines)

TMS – Tombstone Management System
Position and program multi-part setups on tombstone fixtures, automatically generating WFOs and rotary moves. Requires Production Milling package and Advanced CS option. 2.5D Solids and Machine Simulation options recommended. Requires TMS post processor.

Machine Simulation
Model machine tool and simulate machine tool motions to verify setup and all milling programs. Requires Production Milling and 2.5D Solids option.

Wire-EDM
Supports 2-axis parallel, 2-axis tapered with/without parallel lands and 4-axis tapered with/without land. Post processors for most popular Wire-EDM machines included. Requires Production Milling.

SOFTWARE LICENSING OPTION
The standard software licensing mechanism is a hardware dongle in either parallel port or USB port format, which must be specified at time of purchase.

Network License
Provides a network server version of the GibbsCAM software to share licenses within that network. The software controls modules and options that users can check-in/check-out, based on the number of modules and options purchased by the customer. Consult your Reseller for optimum configuration. NOTE: Maintenance purchase is also required for individual seat licenses.
