He has the most direct answer, my reply is to only agree. From my experience among CAM programs Gibbs is quite easy, especially in 2D. Transition between most CAM programs primarily matters in adapting to a different GUI.
Just play safe and you'll get it figured out
Look for cheap CAD/CAM where can i get it? anyone?
The post files for Gibbs are practically identical to the ones used by Surfcam (postform.m). When we looked at Gibbs a while back, we took our postform file and changed the extension and it posted fine. We're still with Surfcam though (Surf2001).
Good luck with the interview.
