INTEROPERABILITY BETWEEN GIBBSCAM’S AND PRO/E WILDFIRE

June, 06

GibbsCAM’s announced today that they will be demonstrating the latest level of interoperability between GibbsCAM and Pro/ENGINEER® Wildfire.

Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM®, CAD/CAM software for programming CNC machine tools, announced today that they will be demonstrating the latest level of interoperability between GibbsCAM and Pro/ENGINEER® Wildfire™ at the PTC/USER World Event Americas held June 4th – 7th at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. GibbsCAM’s interoperability capability is built using PTC’s Granite technology ensuring the highest degree of data access.

“GibbsCAM’s ability to seamlessly read and machine models from Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire,” states Bill Gibbs, president and founder of Gibbs and Associates, “offers the manufacturing engineer, who is working in a facility which uses Pro/ENGINEER, a CNC programming solution that is easy to use yet extremely powerful. The Granite technology, on which this interface is built, allows GibbsCAM complete access to the Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire data.”

Reading in a native Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire file directly into GibbsCAM is extremely straight forward as it’s a file type supported by GibbsCAM’s File Open dialog. GibbsCAM is able to directly read both Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire piece parts and assemblies. Once read into GibbsCAM, processes can be applied to machine the part. GibbsCAM’s full associativity between part geometry, processes and tool path supports easy updates to respond to incremental changes to either part geometry or process parameters.

This is the second year that Gibbs and Associates, a Silver partner in PTC’s Partner Advantage Program, has participated at PTC/USER as a Bronze Premium Partner. Visitors to PTC/USER can see demonstrations of GibbsCAM at Booth 214.
