Posted November 7, 2017 11:27 am   Published by    BobCAD-CAM ">

Tech Tuesday is a weekly blog that addresses some of the most common questions and concerns that I hear throughout the previous week from users of BobCAD-CAM software. Both customers and noncustomers are more than welcome to leave a comment on what they would like to see covered for the following Tech Tuesday. Enjoy!
Training Videos
When it comes to videos, we offer a few different forms of training. Available to anyone, self-help videos can be found on our YouTube channel (subscribe today!) or These videos cover a variety of topics over many versions of BobCAD software, allowing users to view and re-watch on their own time.
BobCAD’s website also has complete video training packages based on the different products we offer, like Mill, Mill Turn, Lathe, etc… This box set of training videos comes with an index so users can easily look up topics of interest about the software. Both BobCAD and BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS videos can be found by clicking HERE.

Tech Tuesday: CAD-CAM Training On Your Time
Every week there will be a blog post dedicated to the most common questions and concerns that I hear throughout the previous week from users of BobCAD-CAM software. My co-workers affectionately refer to me as Jimmy John due to my previous job at a sub shop, but now instead of serving chips, I write about them (pun intended)! Feel free to interact in the comments section and the next Tech Tuesday just might feature your question or concern.
