You also have access to a realistic machine simulation right inside of BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ that allows you to test and confirm your programming before ever cutting a chip.

Features of BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ CNC Lathe Software

Canned Cycles


Canned Cycles
The software supports the use of canned cycles, which are used to reduce the size of your NC programs. You’re given the option of posting each feature as separate moves or as canned cycles.

Custom Tool Holder & Inserts
