Easily Program Any Part
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 geometry to assigning advanced toolpaths. The CAD-CAM software for milling offers powerful toolpath options that perform high speed machining and multiaxis cutting operations, taking full advantage of your CNC milling machine’s capabilities. It provides CNC programming tools that deliver speed and efficiency to help you achieve precision parts in fewer steps.
NEW FEATURE: Redesigned User Interface
The newly redesigned user interface features a modern, Ribbon-style UI. This will help users discover functions easier. With the intuitive organization of the interface, users will be able to remember where functions are easier, and as the software grows, it will be much easier to find new functions in already familiar groups. Discover all the exciting and powerful new features in BobCAD-CAM V31.
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)
Standard reporting tools provide insight to your part programming that aid in processing, planning, quoting and toolpath execution.
Post Processor Library
A large library of downloadable, user-editable post processors that support machine types, configuration and controllers on old & new machine tools.
4/5 Axis Milling
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. Use it to view the complete milling process, detect machined part deviations & collisions, calculate cycle times, and more!
Offering a wide variety of powerful Toolpath strategies for 2, 2 ½ and 3D cycles. More powerful and efficient than conversational programming.
Multiple Job & Multiple Setups
Program multiple machining centers and part operations in a single Job Tree. Easily create setups for any part orientation using BobCAD-CAM’s dynamic part origin to define the toolpath’s work offset.
