Here is a simple method for installing your MTM post. This only applies to MTM posts.

  • Right-click on the shortcut you normally click to run GibbsCAM
  • Select Properties
  • Click on the Find Target button
  • This will open the GibbsCAM installation folder
  • With the right mouse button drag and drop the zip file you received into the GibbsCAM installation folder
  • Select Extract Here

If you do not have an Extract Here choice you probably do not have an extraction utility (WinZip, WinRAR, etc) installed. It is recommended that you download and install this utility. It can be downloaded from

If the steps above fail you may be running a newer version of Windows with more restrictive security.  In this case you should unzip the post package sent to you and install the VMM file into the VMM folder of the GibbsCAM installation directory.  Copy the MDD file into the MDD folder.
