» v26 Mill CAD-CAM Upgrade

The NEW BobCAD-CAM v26 is Here!

v26-box-plus-monitor300xThe brand new BobCAD-CAM V26 CAD-CAM software upgrade is officially released adding Dynamic Machining Strategies, customizable Setup Sheets and so much more! With a new simplified CAM-Job Tree and added benefits such as new Tool Patterns for adding multiple machining strategies within a feature, the ability to copy and paste machining features within the CAM Tree Manager, Multi-Depth 3 Axis Engraving and new posting features. The new V26 CAD-CAM upgrade answers the call for enhancing the NC programming experience and streamlining productivity!

Dynamic Machining Strategies
dynamic operationsWith the new Dynamic Machining Strategies (TM) you can load in different associated machining strategies into one operation. This speeds up the process and allows you to program your parts without having to load different machining features into the tree and then re-select your geometry and so on. An example of this would be when working on 3D parts, programming typically requires roughing, semi-finishing toolpath and then a finish toolpath. Maybe a Z level Rough, Z level Finish and then a Planer toolpath or EquiDistant Offset Contour path. In earlier versions of BobCAD-CAM, each strategy would need to be loaded into the CAM Tree separately, requiring more geometry selections and editing. With our new Dynamic Machining Strategies you can process your geometry with multiples cutting strategies all at one time. You can make changes on the fly to adding in or taking away machining strategies faster and much more efficiently, making CAM programming just that more flexible.

New Tools for 2 Axis Machining Features
In the V25 we added Tapered, T Cutter, Dove Mill and Lollipop tool types. These tools are now available for all 2D/2 Axis machining features! Now it doesn’t matter if you are cutting a pocket, doing a profile or engraving. The new V26 Upgrade is developed to save you time by increasing workflow efficiency and adding critical functionality to program your parts more profitably than before and is perfect CNC Software for Milling, Routing, WaterJet, Laser and Plasma for 2-5 Axis CNC Machining!
