What kind of resources does BobCAD Live link to?
What can you do with the newly updated BobCAD Live Page? This “in-app resource” is designed to keep all your major BobCAD resources in one location that can be accessed inside or outside the software.
What software system is complete without a help system? This long-time resource for all CAD-CAM users starts with looking up topics or keywords about issues or features you want to learn about. Step-by-step examples, tutorials, explanations, and more can all be found in the BobCAD help system.
A spin-off of our help systems is our web-based articles. These sharable online resources address high-traffic topics or things users tend to question. The technical support team adds new “documents” each week, and it’s a great place to look for answers you didn’t find in the help system.
Setup a Demo
Looking to upgrade, set up a demo to learn about new features in the software, higher software levels, or when you add the mill turn package for the live tooling lathe you keep talking about every year? No matter what you are upgrading, it’s best to look first and see what’s included and how it works. This link makes this faster and easier for anyone who wants to” see the new stuff in action.”
Everybody has to start somewhere, and if you are new to BobCAD CAM or software in general, use this to get started—step-by-step instructions to install, register and use your software.

Launchpad Learning Center
Launchpad has replaced our previous training video format, and this online training tool comes with all the files, CAD and CAM, videos, and step-by-step instructions to learn what we found most users need for CAD, Milling, Turning, and Mill Turn. More advanced users can choose from post-processor and machine-building courses.

Connect with Support – Screen Sharing Access Points
Getting help if needed; talking with someone on the phone is great, but being closer to someone is better. Screen sharing assistance allows you and the tech you are working with to see and share computer screens and control. This training method is commonly preferred by both the CAD CAM operator and the tech.
