Autodesk Certifies GibbsCAM for Autodesk Inventor 2015

CNC Programming Software Recognizes Inventor-assigned Part and Feature Attributes to Program Machines Directly from Part Models

MOORPARK, California, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM software solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, announced today that its GibbsCAM® software has been certified for Autodesk Inventor 2015 3D mechanical design software under the Autodesk Certified Apps Program. This marks the fourteenth consecutive year that GibbsCAM has been certified under the program.

Digital prototyping with Autodesk Inventor software helps manufacturers to digitally design, visualize and simulate how a product will work under real world conditions before it is built. GibbsCAM directly opens Autodesk Inventor part models, allowing CNC programmers and machinists to easily and readily program machine tools from the models, extending cost reduction and efficiency through the programming and machining processes. Certification demonstrates that the product is of high quality and up to date, and that it provides the highest level of interoperability with Autodesk Inventor software.

"We are gratified for our continuing partnership with Autodesk and for Autodesk's recognition of GibbsCAM interoperability with Autodesk Inventor," said Robb Weinstein, Senior Vice President of Sales and Strategic Planning of Gibbs and Associates, a Cimatron subsidiary. "Our commitment to joint customers around the world remains unchanged, despite changing marketplace dynamics, as we continue to optimize the CNC-programming power and flexibility GibbsCAM provides Autodesk users."

"We are very pleased to have Gibbs and Associates affirm their continuing dedication to interoperability with Autodesk Inventor through Inventor certification for GibbsCAM," said Carl White, Senior  Director, Manufacturing Engineering, Autodesk. "Having companies like Gibbs and Associates as partners is highly beneficial to our manufacturing customers."

GibbsCAM offers seamless integration with Autodesk Inventor, by directly reading Autodesk Inventor IPT (part model) files, preserving all color information, CAD and hole features and attributes assigned within Inventor to provide continuity in recognizing and communicating part and feature attributes. Alternatively, with the GibbsCAM Autodesk Inventor Add-in, the Inventor user can transfer files directly into GibbsCAM with the "Transfer to GibbsCAM" menu option of Inventor software running on the same workstation. Once machining processes are defined in GibbsCAM, they are automatically updated when the Inventor model is revised.

In addition to its perennial certification of GibbsCAM for Autodesk Inventor, Gibbs and Associates offers a GibbsCAM Plug-in for Autodesk Vault to allow interaction between GibbsCAM and the Autodesk data management software, is an authorized member of the Autodesk Developer Network and is an Autodesk Authorized Independent Software Vendor.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

The material was delivered interac...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
