CAD-CAM for CNC Lathe allows you to design or import part geometry which you’ll assign toolpath strategies to using an intuitive, wizard guiding interface. BobCAD’s feature type programming makes it easy to control the direction of the cut and where on the part the toolpath is created.
V34 Lathe CAM Tree Enhancments

CAM Tree Enhancements(New Feature)

New workflow improves productivity, providing a better user experience for optimizing CNC Turing cycles and toolpath creation. Post and run faster with V34s new and improved CAM Tree navigation and workflow. Double click edit, auto blank, extended CAM Tree, posting fonts, single operation posting, CAM Tree notes and more.

V34 Lathe - Backplot visablity

Backplot Visibility(New Feature)

Step through your toolpath using backplot, a graphic aid to which helps you understand where the tool starts, what direction its cutting and more. Choose from 3 display modes with the option show or hide the holder and insert.

V34 Turning - Toolpath Wizard Defaults

Toolpath Wizard Defaults

Fine-tune your 2 Axis lathe programming for a part, process, or piece of equipment with toolpath wizard defaults. Save your preferred toolpath settings, helping you program parts faster. Change the toolpath wizard setting(s), click save defaults and choose your template, it’s that easy.

 V34 Lathe - Operation Stock

Trim to Stock

Trim away toolpath outside of your operation stock resulting in more efficient toolpaths with shorter cycles times. Use BobCAD’s progressive lathe stock tracking to limit the area of toolpath creation.

BobCAD-CAM Lathe software

High-Performance CAD-CAM for CNC Turning Centers

BobCAD-CAM software for 2-Axis Lathe and turning centers offer powerful toolpaths that outperform traditional canned cycles. Lathe CAD-CAM makes it easy and fast to set up 2-Axis toolpaths for OD and ID roughing, finishing, threading, grooving, boring, drilling, cut-offs and more. This powerful CAD-CAM software is a complete CNC programming solution for all of your simple and complex part geometries.
