GibbsCAM 12 Primer Textbook

GibbsCAM 12 Primer Textbook The GibbsCAM 12 Primer is meant for people that already know how to use GibbsCAM 2016. GibbsCAM 12 has many changes to the interface, but the majority of the functions still work the same. This book bridges the gap between GibbsCAM 2016 and GibbsCAM 12 by comparing the interface and explaining the differences. The functions that have been changed or added will be covered, as well as an overview of the new interface, and how to customize it to your liking. By omitting the content that hasn't changed we can create a smaller and more affordable product that would make a great match with our currently printed set of books. Only the changes from GibbsCAM 2016 to GibbsCAM 12 are covered in this book. The other textbooks from CAM Solutions are a good option if you still need to learn the basics.

GibbsCAM 13 Geometry Creation Textbook

This is the newest edition of our Geometry Creation textbook designed to be compatible with the many new features found in GibbsCAM 12 and 13.

The beginning consists of a GibbsCAM primer to get you used to the new GibbsCAM interface and the buttons within it.

Next you will learn to create and modify geometry with pictures illustrating each function.

The last section contains four separate tutorials, two for a 3 axis mill and two for a 2 axis lathe, where you will create part geometry using multiple functions.

At the end of this textbook you will be ready for the GibbsCAM 13 Milling and GibbsCAM 13 Lathe textbooks that show how to apply tool paths to the part geometry you've drawn.

GibbsCAM 13 Milling Textbook

This is the newest edition of our Milling textbook designed to be compatible with the many new features found in GibbsCAM 12 and 13.

The beginning consists of a mill primer to get you used to the new GibbsCAM interface and the functions you can use when creating a milling tool path.

Next, you will add tool paths to the mill parts that were drawn in the GibbsCAM 13 Geometry Creation textbook.

At the end of this textbook you will have fully machined the parts using multiple tools, processes, and coordinate systems. It is recommended that you go through the Geometry Creation textbook before this one.

GibbsCAM 13 Lathe Textbook

This is the newest edition of our Lathe textbook designed to be compatible with the many new features found in GibbsCAM 12 and 13.

The beginning consists of a turning primer to get you used to the new GibbsCAM interface and the functions you can use when creating a lathe tool path.

Next, you will add tool paths to the lathe programs that were drawn in the GibbsCAM 13 Geometry Creation textbook.

At the end of this textbook you will have fully machined the parts using multiple tools and processes. It is recommended that you go through the Geometry Creation textbook before this one.

GibbsCAM 13 Advanced CS Textbook

This textbook has been created to help teach the Advanced CS portion of GibbsCAM.

The beginning consists of an Advanced CS primer to get you used to the new GibbsCAM interface and functions you can use when creating and manipulating Coordinate Systems.

Next you will learn to modify Coordinate Systems by completing a series of tutorials. Each tutorial will build your knowledge while giving you a practical application.

At the end of this textbook you will be able to create and modify Coordinate Systems, as well as use them to help create and modify geometry and solids. It is recommended that you go through the Geometry Creation and Milling textbooks before this one.

GibbsCAM 13 Rotary Milling Textbook

This textbook will help you learn how to program rotary contouring, pocketing, threading, and engraving as a wrapped tool path with continuous rotary motion.

Capabilities covered for both milling and turning or mill/turn with C-axis interpolation. You will learn how to wrap any shape or text around a cylindrical part via rotary axis interpolation.

This textbook includes four tutorials that cover 4 axis mill and c-axis lathe rotary axis programming. It is recommended that you go through the Geometry Creation, Milling and Lathe textbooks before this one.
