GibbsCAM 2015 version 184.108.40.206-SSQ | 14.2 Gb
Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM software for programming CNC machine tools and a Cimatron company, has released the 11.0.4 version of GibbsCAM 2015 software, its a provides powerful range of CNC programming functionality including Solid Modeling, 2-5 Axis Milling, High Speed Machining, Mill/Turn, Swiss, Wire-EDM, Multi-Task Machining, and more.
GibbsCAM 2015 introduces its new engine, the Universal Kinematic Machine (UKM). GibbsCAM with UKM technology was developed to further simplify programming, provide the flexibility to easily support the most advanced machines, and accurately simulate all of the machine components and capabilities of any machine. GibbsCAM 2015 contains significant improvements throughout the product line from geometry creation to toolpath strategies, as well as significant improvements to tooling, including integration with the Adveon Tooling Library.
GibbsCAM 2015 version 11.0.4 Update List:
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the stock properties of a solid to switch to part properties after aligning the face to CS.
Fix: Resolved an issue in the DCD that was not clear to the user whether or not the "Tool Change Position" was enabled.
Fix: Resolved an issue in the 5-axis Module that caused a parallel curve operation to produce toolpath on the wrong side of the curve.
Fix: Resolved an issue in the 5-axis Module that caused incorrect toolpath while chamfering the edge of the part.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the rendering speed to alter and change the operation colors.
Fix: Resolved an issue that was causing AutoWiz to double the hole clearance amount.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused body bag solids to display a translucent image outside of the bag.
Fix: Resolved an issue that prevented a Finish Mill Bore operation from generating the desired Z Step.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the Operation Report to contain images generated from Machine Sim rather than Op Sim.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the "Show Position" plugin to cancel out CPR rendering.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the stock "stick out length" to change in the DCD when applying a fixture.
Fix: Resolved an issue that prevented the "Contour Trace" plugin from cleaning up the construction geometry.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the "Contour Trace" plugin to remove some of the necessary geometry.
Fix: Resolved an issue that was incorrectly allowing the "Contour Trace" plugin to function when the display preference was set to "No OpenGL".
Fix: Resolved an issue that prevented some specific ".stp" and ".prt" files from solidifying during import.
Fix: Resolved an issue in Intermediate Tooling that caused incorrect behavior of a macro that was designed for adding fixtures.
Fix: Resolved an issue that prevented Op Sim rendering from continuing the simulation after applying new machining operations.
Fix: Resolved an issue that allowed the "Orientation" menu in Intermediate Tooling to be available in conditions when it should not be.
Fix: Resolved an issue using "Pack and Go" files that prevented the correct extraction of the "CustomDrillCycles" folder.
Fix: Resolved an issue using "Pack and Go" files that was not extracting the post processors correctly.
Fix: Resolved an issue that prevented exporting of a specific "STEP" file correctly.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused AutoWiz to create tools using the last used orientation.
Fix: Resolved an issue that prevented a particular Catia part file from importing correctly.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused incorrect behavior when attempting to remove color attributes.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the "Set User Color" dialog to become unavailable.
Fix: Resolved an issue in the "Tool Report" that prevented the correct display of the tool material.
Update: Implemented the ability for the "Pack and Go" utility to gather only the "CustomDrillCycles" relevant to the current MDD.
Fix: Resolved an issue during rendering that prevented collision checking from working when "skip pecks" was enabled.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the Toolblock Library to get out of sync with the current vnc file.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused the system to shut down while the "Sync" dialog was in Spindle Mode.
Fix: Resolved an issue that caused a Rotary Milling operation to display toolpath on the wrong spindle.
Fix: Resolved an issue in the VoluMill module that caused parameters to get out of sync in a multiple process operation.
Update: Implemented a command to be utilized by macros so that a CS can be created from a Hole Feature.
Fix: Resolved an issue in the Post dialog that caused a big slowdown in DNC communications.
Fix: Resolved an issue that prevented post processing of a single VoluMill operation.
Fix: Resolved an issue in the VoluMill module that prevented correct material only toolpath when applying stock from the CAM palette.
Fix: Resolved an issue in rendering that prevented a small chord tolerance from getting applied to the cutting tool display.
Fix: Resolved an issue that could cause the system to crash when an MDD with multiple TGs in a flow is used.
Fix: Resolved an issue that prevented the Post dialog from retaining the "Selected Ops" and the "Inch/Metric" settings.
