Fast & Efficient CAD-CAM For CNC Routers

The new BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ Gold Partner CAM programming solution for CNC routers allows you to program efficient toolpath strategies for simple and complex part models right inside of SOLIDWORKS™. It offers 2.5, 3, 4, and 5 axis machining capabilities and an easy to use wizard driven interface so you can spend less time programming and more time cutting. It’s the perfect CNC router CAM programming solution for artistic woodworking, engraving, production shape nesting, sign making, and much more.

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 Routers

Use the new BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ CNC router software to seamlessly transition from designing your 2D and 3D models to applying advanced high-speed toolpath strategies right inside of SOLIDWORKS™. The wizard driven interface for CNC router operations takes the guesswork out of CNC programming while Dynamic Machining Strategies™ reduces programming time by allowing you to assign multiple cutting strategies to a single feature. Advanced simulation features let you to visually inspect and confirm your work to give you the peace of mind in your CNC programming.
