It’s the age-old question: quantity or quality? How to get the most for your buck without sacrificing the features you need. This is a real-life scenario for shops with smaller budgets. BobCAD’s CAM package gives you all the tools and features you need without unnecessarily overcharging you for them. It’s powerful enough to accommodate the high-end industry needs of Harley Davidson, but our commitment still lies in affordability for budget-conscious machinists of all skills.

As machinists look for quality CAM package, these basic questions often play a factor: Can I open my part files? Will it work with my machine? How will this product make my life easier? Most importantly, can I afford this?

When it comes to file compatibility, our software works with a large variety of formats, allowing you to maximize your project potential from clients. The files we accept are the following: DXF, DWG, IGES/IGS, STEP/STP, ACIS, SAT, 3DM, Para-solids X_T X_B, CAD, SLDPRT, STL. Being able to accept a wide range of files will certainly keep your machine turning!

As far as machine compatibility, our software works with g-code based CNC machines and is guaranteed to work with all supported ISO EIA g-code machines. Listed below are all of the machine types we support.

  • 2-5 Axis Horizontal and Vertical Mills
  • 2-5 Axis Lathes/ Mill Turns ( Multi-spindle and Multi-Turret are supported )
  • 2-5 Axis Routers
  • 2-5 Axis Lasers
  • 2-5 Axis Plasma Cutters
  • 2-5 Axis Waterjets

Okay, it accepts my part file and it works with my machine, but how is the software going to make my life easier? A perfectly valid question, especially if you already have a CAM system that works. The simple answer to that is that we crafted a user-friendly system that allows you to program your part in fewer steps. Improved geometry picking in our new BobCAD-CAM V30 is the latest way we’ve reduced the amount of steps it takes to machine a part. Download V30 today and experience it for yourself.

That brings us to the final question of affordability. Over 30 years ago, our software began on floppy disks and was sold out of the trunk of a car because our founder and President, Bob Twaalfhoven saw that there was a need for affordable software. Fast forward to present day, the only thing that has changed is that our CAM software is compatible with more machines and an industry leader in high-end software. There are no required annual fees or maintenance and we provide most of your post processors for free. Technical phone support is provided to all new customers for the first 45 days with plentiful support plans available for purchase after that.  

To sum it up, I’ll let Jason Kocher, CEO at Aqua Engineering, tell you in his own words. “Best value for the money – I own an engineering firm, and BobCAD is one of my most critical tools to earn money and get projects done. When I hand off parts to the manufacturer, I know they are already optimized for machining because we did them in-house first.” We love to hear great success stories from people like Jason, it confirms that we are being true to our mission.   

For any questions, call us at 877-262-2231 and we’d be happy to assist you. We also offer live, one-on-one demos with an experienced technical advisor for anyone who wishes to see V30 in action.
