GibbsCAM 2016 is designed to help users eliminate scrap and reduce cycle times

The latest version of GibbsCAM CNC machining platform introduces a range of new speed and simulation improvements as it looks to enhance the link between its parent company’s interests in 3D printing and end use parts.

3D Systems suggests that GibbsCAM’s ‘enhanced kinematic framework’ makes it a versatile CAM platform that complements the additive manufacturing processes which its parent company has a firm grounding in.

Compatible with a wide range of programming and machining operations, including solid modeling, high speed machining, 2- to 5-axis milling, wire-EDM, multi-task machining and more, GibbsCAM is designed to help users eliminate scrap and reduce cycle times.

The Taz 6 is set to continue LulzBot’s standing as one of the leading open source desktop 3D printers on the market when it launches on 17 May.

New and improved features for the $2,500 3D printer include self-leveling, self-cleaning, and a wider range of supported materials, with the open source hardware all reportedly made in Colorado, USA.

With a 280 x 280 x 250mm build area and heated glass build platform, and what looks to be a more solid construction, the printer should take the battle for desktop FDM 3D printing to the likes of Ultimaker and Makerbot.
