Utilize our easy-to-use, powerful toolpath wizard technology and streamline your workflow in both part or assembly files. The latest BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS has powerful toolpath features, it’s easy to use and it’s affordable for shops of all sizes.
BobCAM’s New Job Templates allow you to program faster with fewer clicks. Save your stock, set up location, machining features and more. Great for similar projects, part revisions, and standard processes. Get more done with fewer steps using BobCAM V8. See for yourself - Try it today for Free!
The best of both worlds come together in BobCAD’s CAM Tree, Operations and Features. BobCAD’s machining features gives users the ability to create single operations per feature or to customize multiple operations tied to a single feature. This flexible programming workflow eliminates redundant tasks required in operation only CAM Trees.
Utilize BobCAM’s advanced toolpath technology in your part or assembly files. Take advantage of part configuration for different setups or iterations.
2, 3 , 4 and 5 axis hole making is simple with BobCAD’s intuitive hole making wizards. Choose from Standard Drilling, Cross Drilling, or Multiaxis Drilling. Select points, arcs or solid models to define hole locations, sizes and depths. Users can quickly Spot, Drill, Tap and Counterbor with a single machining feature. Post your holes in separate moves or canned cycles.
Offering a wide variety of powerful operations for 2D / 2 ½ D cycles. Work from wireframe sketches, surface edges or faces. More powerful and efficient than conversational programming. Capture and reuse machining processes on future projects to reduce overall programming time, while working directly on user created or customer supplied CAD files.
Simple or Complex BobCAD’s got you covered with up to 21 machining strategies that tackle the most difficult of projects. Advanced features to control where toolpath is created, what it avoids and it’s feedrates. Superior surface finishes is what you expect and BobCAD delivers!
Indexing, Wrapping Groups, Rotary, Advanced Rotary and True 4 axis are all fully supported. Get the most out of your machine when using your 4th axis with BobCAD.
True, full-featured simultaneous toolpath strategies for advanced multiaxis part programming. Controlling tool tilt, avoid areas, feed rate mapping and much more that unlocks the full potential of your 5 Axis CNCs. Table Table, Head Table, Head Head 5 axis machine configuration with advanced posting feature to support Machine Comp in Z, Machine Hybrid compensation RTCP,TCP,TCPC, DWO, Origin Tracking and coordinate rotation.
Get a real view of what’s happening on the machine before you ever cut a chip. BobCAD’s solid simulation is loaded tools to validate your machining process, gouge check, find left over stock and much more.
Documenting your programming process with live feedback as you fine tune your toolpath features are available in many forms. CAM Tree Flyouts, Setup Sheets, Tool Assignment , Gouge and Collision reports, Move Operation and Sequence statics: All created automatically and easily accessible at any stage of machining.
Virtual simulation of your setup and workpiece is standard in BobCAD CAM V32, select display and avoid fixtures gaining better control and confidence in your part programming.
Top level editing and display of critical parameters of the Job, Tools, Stock, Machine Setup, Features, Operations and more. Faster edits and quicker display of those settings user want to see or change most.
High efficiency, high speed and highly used by manufacturers all over the world! Adaptive toolpaths are quickly becoming the standard for 2, 3, 4 and 5 axis roughing. Reduce your cycle times, extend tool life and minimize wear and tear on your equipment with this modern toolpath strategy.
Multiple feedrate adjustments and mapping to optimize tool motion. Eliminate dog leg moves, slow down material entry exit and link moves, volume based, radial chip thinning, surface radius and tool contact feed optimization, feed control zone and more!
Process planning, quoting or scheduling? Use BobCAD’s Toolpath statistics and get detailed automatic reports about: Time Data, Toolpath Extents, Toolath Data and Speed and Feeds.
Display your tool and holder as you step through or play your toolpath operation. Rapid graphical feedback for direction of cut, tool hangout, sequence ,cutter location, tool orientation and more.
Fully customize your toolpaths for unique or challenging scenarios. By deleting, trim and relink, move, replace, break, modify attributes or extend cut moves. Users can directly modify their toolpaths outside of the toolpath wizards parameters.
When using physical media (disk) to install the BobCAM software, the optical drive being used must support DVD-ROM disks.
