3D Systems offers enhanced GibbsCAM 2016 Classroom and Student Editions, now with free access to the GibbsCAM VoluMillTM high-speed machining (HSM) utility. The GibbsCAM 2016 Education Editions include both VoluMill Wireframe and VoluMill Solids to ensure that students can gain exposure to the utility before entering the industry. These new additions enable the software to more closely mirror industrial versions of GibbsCAM, which recently began including VoluMill Wireframe as a free option.

GibbsCAM Education Editions have the same interface as industrial versions, ensuring that graduating students can be prepared to immediately enter the production environment without having to learn a new or modified interface. GibbsCAM Classroom Edition can be licensed for stand-alone and network implementation, and is operationally and functionally identical to industrial versions of GibbsCAM. Students can complete any CNC programming tasks including the generation of machine-ready programs through postprocessing. The Student Edition enables the student to work off-campus and use the software’s bidirectional communication for interaction with the Classroom Edition.

3D Systems’ GibbsCAM software provides full CNC programming, toolpath verification, machine simulation and postprocessing for vertical and horizontal machining centers, turning centers, lathes, multitasking machines, and five-axis rotary tables and indexers.
