MOORPARK, California –Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM software solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, today announced that its subsidiary, Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM [http://www.gibbscam.com software for programming CNC machine tools, participated in two sessions within the manufacturing track at Autodesk University 2013 [ http://au.autodesk.com. Bill Gibbs,founder and president of Gibbs and Associates, was a member of panel discussions on the future of CAD/CAM. Andy Heffner, Gibbs' application engineer, conducted a hands-on demonstration of a GibbsCAM workflow for making and programming parts for CNC machining.

"We were pleased and excited to be invited to support Autodesk in its industry education and forum for discussing topics important to business, design, engineering and manufacturing," said Bill Gibbs. "Aside from helping manufacturers plan for the future and make critical decisions today, Autodesk University provides us a great opportunity to demonstrate GibbsCAM interoperability with Autodesk Inventor [ http://www.autodesk.com/products/autodesk-inventor-family/overview , and GibbsCAM's superiority in ease of use, flexibility and efficiency in programming CNCs of all types, even the most complex multi-axis, multi-task machines, using models created with Autodesk Inventor."

Early this year, GibbsCAM was certified for Autodesk Inventor 2014, marking the thirteenth consecutive year that the software has been certified [ http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?id=21599809siteID=123112 for Autodesk Inventor, and Gibbs and Associates continues to be an authorized member of the Autodesk Developer Networ [ http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?id=472012&siteID=123112 and an Autodesk Authorized Independent Software Vendor [ http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=1088188 . GibbsCAM offers seamless integration with Inventor, directly reading Autodesk Inventor IPT (part model) files, preserving all color information assigned within Inventor to provide continuity in recognizing and communicating part and feature attributes.

"We are very pleased to have Gibbs and Associates renew Inventor certification for GibbsCAM," said Carl White, Senior Director of Manufacturing Engineering Products at Autodesk. "GibbsCAM has supported Autodesk Inventor with direct reading of Inventor models and assemblies since the beginning of our certification program, with constant dedication to interoperability and ease of use. We are proud to have companies like Gibbs and Associates as partners in delivering extensible, flexible and easy-to-use applications to our manufacturing customers."

GibbsCAM's full associativity of geometry, processes and toolpaths easily accommodates updates to Autodesk Inventor part geometry and process parameters. CNC programmers can quickly optimize parts and define the process for machining the parts, whether they have simple geometry needing only 2-axis turning or 2.5-axis milling, or complex geometry requiring the latest 5-axis machining centers, multi-task machines or Swiss-style turning centers. Once machining processes are defined in GibbsCAM, they are automatically updated when the Inventor model is revised. GibbsCAM also directly reads AutoCAD DXF and DWG files, enabling use of part geometry to program machining processes.
