BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ Mill Turn, a Gold Partner CAM solution, can perform everything from simple 2 axis turning to 3 & 4 axis milling and full 4 & 5 axis simultaneous machining right inside of SOLIDWORKS™. It offers a variety of sophisticated and fully associative machining strategies within an intuitively designed wizard driven interface. BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ gives you the control needed to easily program non-perpendicular multiaxis tool movements involved in machining intricate features and compound angles. This is particularly useful for programming complex parts such as medical components, complex valves, tool holders, oil drilling tools, and many others.

SOLIDWORKS CAM Software Features for
CNC Mill Turn Machines

2 Axis Turning & Live C Axis


2 Axis Turning & Live C Axis
BobCAM C axis milling supports positioning and contouring motion on the OD and part face. Use it with indexing, wrapping, and rotary toolpaths to drill holes, cut pockets, and more on the center line around the part diameter.

Y Axis Milling Support


Y Axis Milling Support
BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ Y axis milling support gives you the ability to perform milling operations both on and off the center line, allowing you to execute 2, 3, and 4 axis milling and cross drilling on the OD and part face.

5 Axis Milling Head Support


5 Axis Milling Head Support
B axis (5 axis) milling head programming features can be used with single spindle and sub-spindle machine setups to give you the flexibility to best target your parts when performing facing, pocketing, and hole drilling operations.

Mill Turn CNC Machine Compatibility


Y Axis Milling Support
BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ supports nearly all mill turn, multitasking, live-C, and lathe equipped with live tooling machine setups. This includes machine setups with multiple spindles, multiple turrets, milling heads, programmable steady rests, programmable tailstocks, part catchers, and machines with B (5 axis), C, and CY axis capabilities.

Full Machine Simulation


Full Machine Simulation
Utilize your machine’s kinematics and full machine and tool definitions to test and confirm your mill turn programming before ever cutting a chip in this collision rich machining environment.

MDI Programming


MDI Programming
MDI programming within the multitask CNC software allows you to set up the sequence of actions performed before tool changes, after tool changes, or after an operation is completed.
