Gibbscam User Information
The G-Post is a comprehensive state-of-the-art software product that produces coordinate data and the associated "G-codes" and "M-codes" for CNC equipment. The CIMpro application provides an easy to use interface that allows access to the APT System, G-Post, and CAD/CAM modules. Optionally, the G-Post can be deployed through end user interfaces, providing the end user with the convenience of using their proprietary environmental architecture. The Option File Generator enables postprocessor generation through an easy to use graphical user interface (GUI). As standard product offerings, the G-Post will handle multi-axis machines and has ARC Fitting and NURBS interpolation. No additional prerequisite software is required so there are no hidden charges.
Users of any current version of Gibbscam software can use the G-Post by utilizing our Gibbscam CAD/CAM interface. Our interface allows you to postprocess your CL files through the CIMpro interface. The G-Post is available for most UNIX and Windows platforms.
Licenses for the G-Post can be acquired for Node Locked workstations or for Shared Server environments. If you already have a license for G-Post that you use with a different CAD/CAM type or APT, existing postprocessors can be used with the Mastercam CAD/CAM interface with little or no modification. If you have multiple CAD/CAM systems, only one G-Post license is required. CAD/CAM interfaces are available for all major CAD/CAM systems so you only need one postprocessor solution.
NOTE: the G-Post software does not come with Gibbscam.
CL File Creation
To successfully post process your Gibbscam tool path through the G-Post software, you must first have Gibbscam generate an CL file. This file contains the tool path information that will be read by your postprocessor. To generate the CL file requires a special Gibbscam post processor that can be obtains from your Gibbscam reseller or directly from Gibbscam.
CL File translation
The Gibbscam CL file is processed though this interface to make it readable by our G-Post post processing software.
