BobCAD-CAM Laser, Plasma, Waterjet CAD-CAM software

High Performance CAD-CAM for CNC Laser, Plasma, & WaterJet Machines

BobCAD-CAM CNC programming software for laser, plasma, and waterjet machines offers powerful 2-5 axis cutting capabilities with a fully integrated CAD system that allows you to transition seamlessly from creating your part model to assigning advanced toolpath strategies for your g-code programming. The CAD-CAM software offers a variety of tool options to give you complete control over how your parts are cut.

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.

LASER, PLASMA & WATERJET FEATURES

CAD-CAM software for CNC laser, plasma, and waterjet machines delivers the power you need to machine everything from simple 2 axis to complex multiaxis part cutting. It incorporates a full range of sophisticated and fully associative machining strategies through a simple wizard-driven interface to make programming quicker and easier, even for new and occasional users. Dynamic Machining Strategies™ offers a reduction in programming time by allowing you to assign multiple machining strategies to a single feature while advanced simulation functionality lets you test and confirm your work to give you the peace of mind in your CNC programming.

Standard File Translators

BobCAD-CAM software is compatible with a large variety of file formats to give you the flexibility needed when working with client files. (DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP, SAT, 3DM, X_T, X_B, SLDPRT, STL)

Create & Save Cutting Conditions

Using the tool library, you can create and save tooling information to apply on jobs with similar cutting conditions. Customizable conditions by machine: Plasma (gas type, gas on/off, cut on/off, cutting feed rate, power setting, torch height control); Laser (shutter open/closed, pulse frequency, power setting and Waterjet (cutter on/off, abrasive on/off, vacuum assist on/off, cutting feed rate, pressure type.

Pipe Cutting, Notching, Coping

BobCAD-CAM supports 4 & 5 axis shape cutting machines and provides solid simulation for custom machine configurations to allow you to visually inspect and confirm your programming process.

Toolpath Patterns

Easily make copies of your part profiles using BobCAD-CAM toolpath patterns. This allows you to program single or multiple features and quickly pattern them out. Patterns inside of patterns are supported, which allows for fast programming of multiple parts with more than one feature.

Shape Library

The CAD-CAM software includes 40 pre-programmed common fabrication shapes that can be easily modified to fit your specific shape needs.

Post Processor Library

BobCAD-CAM offers a large library of downloadable post processors that work with variety of machine types from many of the biggest machine manufacturers in the industry. Customize the post to fit your specific machine requirements or BobCAD-CAM can customize a post for you.
