Directly Machine SOLIDWORKS Files

With GibbsCAM, you can focus on programming your SOLIDWORKS® parts, not figuring out how to read them. GibbsCAM’s industry-leading ease-of-use ensures that you can actually use its powerful capabilities. And if the part changes, GibbsCAM’s full associativity allows you to easily modify and update your programs with just a couple clicks of the mouse.

Powerful Interoperability with SOLIDWORKS

GibbsCAM takes full advantage of SOLIDWORKS capabilities by directly reading solids, preserving features and colors and easily updating revised part files.
