» v27 CAD-CAM Upgrade
The NEW BobCAD-CAM v27 is Here!
CAD Design functionality is a major focus of the BobCAD-CAM v27 product as well as an overhaul of many existing 2D & 3D Design functions. The main idea was to bring a better design flow when editing or creating part files within the BobCAD-CAM CAD system in both 2D and 3D design. As well as all of these enhancements, a major enhancement to the Mill 3 Axis Pro module is also found in this release that includes 3 new toolpaths, as well as enhancements to the preexisting CAM machining operations now available with the Mill 3 Axis Pro module.
Here is what you can find in the New v27 CAD CAM software:
New CAD Design Tree
The Solid Tree now added to BobCAD-CAM allows users to now be able to modify any step in their solid creation. In the past once a 3D model was created, the only way to modify a previous step was to either start over, or starting undoing back to the part that needed modified.
Now every solid / surface creation tool is added to the Solid Tree and is fully associated to the geometry used to create the solid model, allowing users to easily modify and make adjustments to their model.
v27 includes Dynamic Drawing. Many of the 2D geometry creation tools have been enhanced to allow simultaneous sketching and editing of values giving the user a better solution to draw parts they want more quickly. They can utilize both sketching and entering of values at the same time, instead of having to switch modes within the functions. 2D geometry creation tools have been enhanced to utilize Dynamic Drawing functionality and is added to Line Sketch, Line Continuous, ARC Sketch, Rectangle, Ellipse and Drag Corner features. This is also expanded to the Solid creation, in which a majority of the Solid and Surface Creation Tools allow the user to dynamically drag things close to the dimension they are looking for, then editing the values to the exact values they want!
