Review Quotes

“What I love about BobCAD is that it allowed me to start from ground zero. They had excellent training and a lot of resources. It really took an intimidating subject and made it simple for me. Not only in the sense of how to learn it but also cost-wise. It was a very viable option.”

Andy McConnell | Blacksmith | CAM Forge Tool

Joshua Lee | Owner | JDA Custom / JDA Aqua Cutting, Inc.

“I am a long time BobCAD user and have never been disappointed in a new version. It is a BIG deal that BobCAD lets you purchase just the level of software that you need and not require you to get the full blown version.”

Longtime Customer | June 2016 Survey
“I couldn’t be happier; the software is performing flawlessly. Whenever I come across something new that I’m unfamiliar with, I can usually find a tutorial on YouTube that clears it up for me. In fact, I would highly recommend anyone who uses BobCAD or is considering the software to check out the BobCAD After Dark videos series on YouTube, they are very informative and well done.”

“I am very happy with the changes in V26 to the lathe module. I am also glad that the change was made in the mill module to retain the tool offsets IF you clicked “overide offsets”

Ron A. | Customer

“Bob CAD-CAM is the best software I’ve ever used. The cost of other software’s don’t compare to the quality and useability that Bob-CAD offers. Being a Solid Works user we have now streamlined our engineering and design departments and merged the wood-shop together into one entity. Upgrading and keeping up with the newer versions every year keeps us on top of new technologies. I’ve using Bob-cad for 23 years since version 12. I’m really happy with all the progress and development. Keep up the great work. Thank you”

I made it for a friends nursery, Very cool “wall hanger”, they loved it! Looks so good, it may be functional!!!! Thanks guys!”

“I began programming cnc’s around twenty years ago and have used many different cad/cam packages. I use BobCAD now and I have recommended you to numerous companies here in England and I am surprised that it is not the number one in the world. Please accept my thanks for your friendly and helpful team. I will insist on BobCAD wherever I might work in the future.”

“We make the best gas engines for giant same model aircraft with BobCAD, and we wouldn’t change it for anything! BobCAD allows us to create beautiful parts fast and efficiently, and their customer support is second to none. BobCAD for us has been the difference between having to contract CAM services, and being able to create our parts by ourselves.”

M.S – SE Model Products | Miami, FL

“I have to say V25 PRO is the fastest and most capable of all of the versions in my opinion. I’ve tool pathed some pretty wild shapes and so far there hasn’t been one thing BobCAD couldn’t toolpath! V25 is the king and the 4th-axis add-on is excellent!”
