BobCAD CNC software Hobby CAD-CAM software isn’t just for the independent home shop machinist anymore since the release of the BobCAD’s latest CNC Software. At a glance, the CNC software’s affordability indicates it’s a fit for the DIY Home Machinist community. It doesn’t take long to discover that our CNC software products offer big shop power for a small shop price. Staying true to BobCAD-CAM tradition by offering high powered CAD-CAM products and competitive prices, we decided to develop of a slightly scaled down version of the latest Express Milling product and simply turned off some of the advanced features hobbyists would rarely if ever, need. Thus, creating a quality CAD-CAM program priced for any home machinist, hobbyist, student or start-up CNC business.
BobCAD’s latest CNC software offers a full compliment of 2D machining features and 3D Planar surface Milling strategies so that the operator still has a 3D advantage for more complex parts. Over 160 CAD Design features make up a classic hybrid solid and surface modeler for those that need to innovate or import popular CAD files from other design products for machining. The CAM Tree offers the toolpath on-the-fly editing associativity that the higher level modules have including cutting conditions, tool patterns, multi-tool drilling cycles, material and tool libraries and a simplified stock wizard that allows the user to create the part stock. Machining operations are considered “features” and include machining wizards that step the operator through creating Toolpath for the part.

    HI, I use mach3 post processor for my fireball x90. I need an affordable software where I can create and or edit imports. Paint and Microsoft word just don’t cut it. I make military plaques, signs and the like from various materials. I would like to try your free trial to see if all is compatible before I think of buying. Can you help this hobbyist and what’s the price for my application. Retired on fixed income…thanks…Doug
