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!
