Customize GibbsCAM MDD and Simulation
JEFF CNC developing good GibbsCAM Postprocessor for CNC programming. Most people know good POST good program, it’s very important for programming. But in the mean time, we need good MDD (Machine Definition Document) and Machine simulation.
The MDD is an exact physical description of your machine, its tools, spindles and its axes. It is used by GibbsCAM to offer appropriate functionality.
Sometimes MDD doesn’t match your machine, even though we can change POST and get good NC codes, but is not the best way.
Gibbs MDD always follow CAM file automatically. You will get new MDD when you copy a special Gibbs CAM file; It’s so easy and good for you if you don’t have same MDD. But it’s very easy mix up different MDD and maybe doesn’t match your machine. It’s very dangerous for CNC programming and machining.
JEFFCNC can customize good MDD for you, and MDD can be related in JEFFCNC special POST. You will get good POST and good MDD, and guarantee no any problem for your program.
GibbsCAM Machine Simulation option is a 3D representation of a Machine Tool, the part and cutting tools that supplements the standard rendering component of GibbsCAM. Machine Simulation provides a machine-centric view of what is happening as opposed to the standard rendering which is part-centric.
You can customize Machine Simulation by GibbsCAM Machine Builder, a tool to create the models that represent the machine tool. Machine Simulation supports lathe, mill, advanced mill, rotary mill and Tombstone Machining System parts.
JEFFCNC can help you customize good Machine simulation for test and improve your program.
You can see 4Axis and 5Axis Machine Simulation samples, so simple but beautiful, good for showing in different angle.
4Axis Machine Simulation:
You don’t need worry about your parts position on tombstone. You can set your parts zero everywhere only keep all coordinated system in same zero. You don’t need change anything for Machine Simulation, it's very easy.
5Axis Machine Simulation:
