Spindles and Parts gibbscam

Machine components that hold a workpiece (part and/or stock) require special definition in the machine assembly. This is so that Machine Simulation knows how to position the workpiece during simulation. A special machine component called a Part Body (P-body for short) must be defined in the machine assembly. The P-body …

Comparison of rendering modes gibbscam

Simulation is very different than the traditional GibbsCAM rendering (“CPR”) and is not the same as Flash CPR. Flash CPR is fairly similar to the traditional rendering except for the actual image in that it uses the same part-centric toolpath display as traditional rendering. Simulation rendering in Part Mode (see …

Consistency Check gibbscam

Clicking the OK button in the Tombstone Machining System dialog performs an operation consistency check to verify that the operations defined in the operation groups match the operations defined in the Gibbs operation tile list. In case of difference, you will see a message box similar to the one seen …

Mode gibbscam

The Mode section sets what kind of posted output will be generated. Depending on the setting, the TMS operation icon will change. The multi-part information will be ignored. The part will be posted as a standard part. Single Part Each operation will be output only once. This mode generates an …

Update Tracking gibbscam

Every change in the operations, such as deleting, moving or creating new operations, will flag the TMS operation as being out of sync. The icon shows this by putting the tombstone icon in a red box. This is a warning that operations have changed and the multi-part definition should be …

Contouring gibbscam

In this sample part we start with a part that has already had plunge roughing processes applied to it. The results were saved as a facet body and that is used as our stock. This part demonstrates how to use the Contour Plunge Rough process. There is geometry that defines …

Boundary Style gibbscam

Here you define the type of boundary to be used. In some cases, what you have selected in the workspace will control your available options. Boundary Type There are 5 boundary types: Bounding Box (default), Silhouette, Shallow Areas, Cutter Contact Areas and Selected Curves. The boundary type will be limited …

Intersections gibbscam

This process type creates a single pass along all corners of the part. This process is intended to finish the part using pencil or rest milling after general machining of a component with a larger tool. The area to be machined is determined by the diameter of the tool selected. …
