MOORPARK, California, January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ and TASE: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated
CAD/CAM solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, announced
today that its acclaimed GibbsCAM software will be demonstrated at the
SolidWorks World 2013 Conference.

The Conference will also feature a presentation by GibbsCAM on"Machining
SolidWorks Features".To be delivered by Steve Aughinbaugh, GibbsCAM
applications engineer, from 6:45PM-7:00PM, Monday, January 21, 2013, the
presentation will highlight GibbsCAM's new capabilities that provide optimal
integration between SolidWorks and GibbsCAM. The presentation focuses on the
simplification of machining solids created in SolidWorks. Mr. Aughinbaugh will
demonstrate how GibbsCAM uses Knowledge Based Machining to automatically read
SolidWorks part features and machine them with a single mouse click. In
addition to the presentation, GibbsCAM demonstrations will be available in
Booth 606 of the Partner Pavilion. The conference is being held from January
20-23, 2013, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotel facility, in Lake
Buena Vista, Florida.

GibbsCAM, a SolidWorks Certified CAM Product, has many new capabilities
providing seamless integration between SolidWorks and GibbsCAM. This year's
presentation will be centered on new automation functionality, GibbsCAM
Feature Manager, which reads and preserves features from SolidWorks files.
Feature Manager enables the NC programmer to read features from the SolidWorks
Feature Tree, such as extrusions, patterns, and revolved features, easily
identify and select areas for machining, and apply machining processes
required to make the part. Perhaps of greatest benefit to users, is GibbsCAM's
unique ability to handle the inevitable engineering changes that require
modifying a part. When an updated part file is transferred into GibbsCAM, it
automatically identifies changed features and updates all machining processes
with one or two clicks of the mouse. The result is faster programming and more
accurate parts produced more quickly. SolidWorks users also benefit from
GibbsCAM's unique user interface, making it easy to learn and use, for both
designers and manufacturing professionals.

For the demonstration, Mr. Aughinbaugh will open a SolidWorks part with
pockets and other features, load the part into GibbsCAM and machine it,
demonstrating the ease, speed and efficiency of reading features from the
Feature Tree and programming them. To demonstrate how GibbsCAM saves valuable
time with an updated part, he will show how GibbsCAM reads the revised part,
automatically recognizes changes, updates the machining processes and
generates a new NC program. This demonstration will clearly illustrate the
value of this dynamic integration between SolidWorks and GibbsCAM in
family-of-parts programming and providing quick response to engineering change

Other time saving functionality for SolidWorks users include GibbsCAM's
Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) and its Hole Manager, which integrates
with the SolidWorks Hole Wizard to automatically read, recognize, and machine
holes. Hole Manager reads all attributes applied to holes created by the
SolidWorks Hole Wizard, and automatically generates tool lists and processes
right down to the finished operations. GibbsCAM also preserves colors applied
to SolidWorks models. Since colors applied in the design process often convey
information about manufacturing processes, preserving these colors improves
communication between design and manufacturing, reducing errors and speeding
up programming time. In combination with Feature Manager's reading of solid
features from the Feature Tree, GibbsCAM AFR and Hole Manager greatly simplify
solids machining and provide huge time savings for the SolidWorks user.

The combination of GibbsCAM and SolidWorks 2013 provides a complete CAD/CAM
solution for most manufacturing environments. Whether parts have simple
geometry needing only 2.5-axis milling or 2-axis turning, or complex geometry
requiring use of 5-axis machining, MTM or Swiss-style turning centers, the
SolidWorks-GibbsCAM combination accommodates and optimizes the machining
process. GibbsCAM verifies the toolpaths with gouge detection and interference
checking, then dynamically and visually simulates them on virtual machine
tools, and accurately post-processes them to generate optimal NC programs.
GibbsCAM features help users eliminate scrap, reduce cycle times, and maximize
efficiency, safety and profits.
