Fast & Efficient CAD-CAM For CNC Routers

BobCAD-CAM CNC programming solutions for CNC routers delivers efficient 2.5, 3, 4, and 5 axis machining capabilities that takes advantage of your CNC router’s ability to perform simple and advanced machining operations. This easy to use CAD-CAM programming software is a complete design and CNC programming solution for artistic woodworking, engraving, production shape nesting, sign making, and much more.

NEW FEATURE: Redesigned User Interface

The newly redesigned user interface features a modern, Ribbon-style UI. This will help users discover functions easier. With the intuitive organization of the interface, users will be able to remember where functions are easier, and as the software grows, it will be much easier to find new functions in already familiar groups. Discover all the exciting and powerful new features in BobCAD-CAM V31.

ROUTER FEATURES

Use CAD-CAM for CNC router software to seamlessly transition from designing your 2D and 3D models to assigning advanced high-speed toolpath strategies in the fully integrated and associative CAM software. A wizard guiding interface for CNC router operations takes the guesswork out of CNC programming while Dynamic Machining Strategies™ reduces programming time by allowing you to assign multiple cutting strategies to a single feature. Advanced simulation features allow you to visually inspect and confirm your work to give you the peace of mind in your CNC programming.

Wood, Glass, Plastic & Stone Cutting

BobCAD-CAM offers powerful toolpath strategies that that can be used for woodworking as well as plastic, stone, and glass machining.

Multiaxis CNC Router Support

BobCAD-CAM software for CNC routers offers comprehensive solutions for 2-5 axis capable machines which includes tilt based machining, true 4 & 5 axis positioning, and full 4 & 5 axis contouring. This is great for pattern making, composite manufacturing, form mold making, furniture manufacturing, part trimming, and more!

Tabs

Hold your parts in place using BobCAD-CAM’s user-defined tab system. The software offers you the option of picking your tab locations manually or automatically, allowing you to select number of tabs, distance between tabs along with the height, width, and angle of tabs to give you complete control of your part tabs.

Pocketing

BobCAD-CAM provides multiple pocketing patterns that accommodate various machining conditions to give you more control over how your pockets are cut.

Engraving

Engraving is supported on both 2D and 3D parts so you can engrave text, patterns, logos, and more on just about anything. The software supports engraving true and open type fonts which includes all of the Windows® fonts from your computer.
