Router, Laser, WaterJet & Plasma Software Testimonials
“What used to take me a week, now takes me an hour. The BobCAD system has brought me time and allowed me to maintain the quality that I wanted and make improvements as well.”
Roderick MacLellan – MacLellan Bagpipes – Monroe, NC
“This is my 30th year programming NC and CNC. I design my own products, prototype and run them in my shop. I have many expensive and high priced CAD/CAM systems. NONE of these other programs can even get close to BobCAD-CAM when it comes to CAD/CAM functions!”
Darrel Ralph – Darrel Ralph Designs – Columbus, OH
“As of today I have written 9031 NC programs using BobCAD-CAM software. I’ve modified approximately 3000 additional programs due to part changes and modifications. This represents between 4 and 7 million dollars worth of income over a 16 year period. We are currently running a 3D roughing a planar contour program followed by an Equidistant finisher profile on our Haas CNC mill. It worked perfect. The finish is phenomenal!”
M. Spencer – Spencer Corporation – Santa Clara, CA
“I love the new BobCAD-CAM program! I’ve been a machinist since the age of 18 and BobCAD-CAM has given me the ability to do some awesome things. After contacting technical support I can say that they were amazing and knowledgeable. Great service! They were wonderful and very helpful.”
