3D Systems has announced that its suite of GibbsCAM 2016 software for programming CNC machine tools has been certified by DS SolidWorks for its SOLIDWORKS 2017 mechanical CAD software. This certification assures that engineers and CNC programmers can use GibbsCAM 2016 to program simple and complex parts for machining on all kinds of CNC lathes, mills, turning centers, multi-axis machining centers and multi-tasking machines, directly from SOLIDWORKS CAD models.
GibbsCAM 2016 is certified for SOLIDWORKS 2017 as part of the SOLIDWORKS Partner Product Program, under which GibbsCAM has been a Certified CAM Product for many years. DS SolidWorks created the CAM certification to identify best-in-class CAM solutions with enhanced interoperability, assuring users that their solution can read the native SOLIDWORKS file format. GibbsCAM 2016 is immediately compatible with SOLIDWORKS 2017 per the requirements of the certification.
Certification also demonstrates a commitment to joint SOLIDWORKS-GibbsCAM customers, and ensures these customers can take advantage of the latest GibbsCAM enhancements to achieve the highest productivity from SOLIDWORKS 2017. In combination with GibbsCAM automation features, integration with SOLIDWORKS simplifies preparation for machining, and makes machining much faster, saving huge blocks of time for SOLIDWORKS-GibbsCAM users. GibbsCAM's short learning curve and unique, shop-friendly user interface provide additional productivity from ease of use, reliability, and speed of programming.
