BobCAD-CAM software for milling delivers advanced 2.5, 3, 4, & 5 axis cutting capabilities with a fully integrated CAD design system that allows you to seamlessly transition from designing your part model to assigning advanced milling toolpaths. From aerospace engineers to home shop machinists, BobCAD-CAM helps everyone design and manufacture precision parts, regardless of experience. Since 1985, BobCAD-CAM has been developing easy to use and affordable CAD-CAM software. We offer CNC programming solutions for Mill, Mill Turn, Lathe, Router, Waterjet, Plasma, Laser, and Wire EDM machines. BobCAD-CAM integrates CAD and CAM functionality in a single interface.
BobCAD-CAM milling software delivers the functionality you need to program everything from simple engraving, profile, pocket and hole cycles, to complex simultaneous 4 & 5 axis milling routines. It incorporates a full range of sophisticated, efficient and modern machining strategies through a simple wizard-driven interface that makes programming quicker & easier, even for new and occasional users. Dynamic Machining Strategies™ minimize your programming while advanced solid simulation lets you test and confirm your work, giving you confidence in your part programming.
Compatible with a large variety of industrystandard file formats. (DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP, SAT, 3DM, X_T, X_B, SLDPRT, STL)
Standard reporting tools provide insight to your part programming that aid in processing, planning, quoting and toolpath execution.
A large library of downloadable, user-editable post processors that support machine types, configuration and controllers on old & new machine tools.
True, full-featured simultaneous toolpath strategies for advanced multiaxis part programming. Controlling tool tilt, avoid areas and feed rate mapping that unlocks the full potential of your 4 & 5 axis CNCs.
Program through, blind and cross holes using your machine’s canned cycles or long code. Built-in thread library for sizes and setting when tapping or thread milling
Utilize your machine’s configuration & kinematics to test and confirm your mill programming before ever cutting a chip
Offering a wide variety of powerful Toolpath strategies for 2, 2 ½ and 3D cycles. More powerful and efficient than conversational programming
Program multiple machining centers and part operations in a single Job Tree. Easily create setups for any part orientation using dynamic part origin to define the toolpath’s work offset.
The NEW Machine Simulation PRO Add-on offers state-of-the-art toolpath simulation technology for BobCAD-CAM CNC programming software. The Machine Simulation PRO Add-on can be easily added to any of the latest BobCAD-CAM & BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ core CAD-CAM products giving you full advantage of all the NEW advanced simulation technology benefits!
