BobCAD-CAM, Inc. includes dynamic drawing snap increment functionality with the company’s new Version 28 CAD-CAM software release. The feature is available as a standard CAD tool with new BobCAD-CAM V28 purchases and upgrades.
Dynamic Drawing with Snap Increments
All dynamic drawing functions in BobCAD-CAM now include the new snap increment function, which acts as a uniform grid in the CAD design workspace. This allows the user to define a snap increment based on distances or angles. This feature, which can be turned on & off, was created to speed up the drawing process for users that prefer to work on a grid style workspace when creating their 2D & 3D part models. It effectively reduces the number of clicks and data entry modifications typically required in a grid-less CAD system to allow for greater design workflow capabilities.
“The new snap increment functionality in CAD is going to save a lot of everyday programmers valuable time and money,” explains Al DePoalo, Partner Products Manager, BobCAD-CAM. “It’s a very intuitive feature that really speeds up the geometry creation process. We’re getting a lot of great feedback from V28 users on this feature.”
The New BobCAD-CAM Software
In addition to snap increment functionality, the company also developed a wide variety of other features, including smarter hole making systems, better surfacing toolpaths, support for custom & specialty tool types, improved simulation, and more. BobCAD-CAM also debuted the company’s first Mill Turn product that supports CNC mill turn / multitasking machines.
All together, the Version 28 software series and Mill Turn module launch is one of the company’s most significant product releases in their 30-year history.
Demos of the new Version 28 and Mill Turn module are available now for immediate download from BobCAD.com. The software can also be purchased from company’s PRODUCT PAGE.
