High Performance CAD-CAM for CNC Laser, Plasma, & WaterJet Machines

BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ Gold Partner CAM solution for laser, plasma, and waterjet CNC machines offers powerful 2-5 axis cutting capabilities right inside of SOLIDWORKS™. Seamlessly transition from creating your part model to assigning advanced toolpath strategies, simulating jobs, and generating g-code programming.

NEW FEATURE: NcEditor

The NC code editor has seen an enhancement, and we are proud to introduce the new NcEditor product into the BobCAD-CAM product line. This product was developed to make your code editing and review much faster and more efficient, as well as provide the ability to simulate your NC programs directly!

Features of BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ for CNC Laser, Plasma, & WaterJet

BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ software is a powerful CAM solution for CNC laser, plasma, and waterjet machines. It delivers the precision you need to machine everything from simple 2 axis jobs to complex multiaxis parts. You control a full range of sophisticated and fully associative machining strategies using an intuitive wizard driven interface that makes toolpath programming faster and easier than ever before. You can even test and confirm your CAM programming in the BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ simulation to give you the peace of mind in your programming before ever cutting a chip.

file_translator

Standard File Translators

Compatible with a large variety of industry-standard file formats, giving you the flexibility needed when working with client files. (DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP, SAT, 3DM, X_T, X_B, SLDPRT, STL)

create-save

Create & Save Cutting Conditions

Using the tool library, you can create and save tooling information to apply on jobs with similar cutting conditions. Customizable conditions by machine: Plasma (gas type, gas on/off, cut on/off, cutting feed rate, power setting, torch height control); Laser (shutter open/closed, pulse frequency, power setting and Waterjet (cutter on/off, abrasive on/off, vacuum assist on/off, cutting feed rate, pressure type.

pipe-cutting

Pipe Cutting, Notching, Coping

BobCAD-CAM supports 4 & 5 axis shape cutting machines and provides solid simulation for custom machine configurations to allow you to visually inspect and confirm your programming process.

toolpath-patterns

Toolpath Patterns

Easily make copies of your part profiles using BobCAD-CAM toolpath patterns. This allows you to program single or multiple features and quickly pattern them out. Patterns inside of patterns are supported, which allows for fast programming of multiple parts with more than one feature.

shape-library

Shape Library

The CAD-CAM software includes 40 pre-programmed common fabrication shapes that can be easily modified to fit your specific shape needs.

post-processor-library

Post Processor Library

BobCAD-CAM offers a large library of downloadable post processors that work with variety of machine types from many of the biggest machine manufacturers in the industry. Customize the post to fit your specific machine requirements or BobCAD-CAM can customize a post for you.
