Laser, Plasma, & WaterJet
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
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 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, 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.
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.
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
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.
