The main enhancement in the new PowerShape release is the ability to rewind the solid history tree of a model to any position using a graphical slider features are recognized the history is rewound suppressing the features the front face is moved and the history is restored
Numerous new capabilities provide seamless integration between SolidWorks and GibbsCAM notably GibbsCAM Feature Manager which allows NC programmers 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
