BobCAD-CAM Wire CAD-CAM software

Ultra Precision Wire EDM CAD-CAM Software

Wire EDM is a complete wireframe, surface and solid modeling CAD-CAM system that delivers ultra precision cuts with superiors finishes in an easy to use CNC programming software. It allows you to create and import part models, assign wirepath strategies, simulate and generate g-code specific to your wire machine and controller. With an intuitive workflow, BobCAD makes it easy to program precision cuts for all of your tight tolerance part manufacturing. Delivering results that are consistent with the strict cutting requirements of mold making and tool & die industries.

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.

WIRE FEATURES

Quickly and easily program your intricate part shapes with constant tapers, variable tapers, lands areas, sharp or radius corners using 2 and 4 axis toolpath. Use of open, closed, inside or outside cutting features defined by its wizard driven CAM technology. This powerful software allows uses customize skim passes, independent lead-ins & lead-outs, glue stops, cutting conditions and 4 axis synchronization. A complete wire EDM programming solution that works with Mitsubishi, Japax, Brother, Fanuc, Sodick and other CNC Wire EDM machines.

2 & 4 Axis Wirepaths

Wire EDM software supports programming open and closed shapes for 2 axis, 2 axis with taper, and 4 axis wirepath cutting. It works with wireframe geometry or you can program directly off of surface edges.

Land & Taper

BobCAD-CAM gives you three taper setting options when programming 2 axis profiles – none, taper, and land & taper – simplifying the process of setting up and programming jobs without additional geometry.

4 Axis Automatic Synchronization

With Wire EDM, you can select from three options that assist in synchronizing and speeding up your programming for your 4 axis wirepaths. Each option offers a unique method of aligning the top and bottom guide of your CNC wire EDM machine.

Toolpath Patterning

Pattern wire EDM features utilizing the array, translate, or rotate patterning techniques offered in the BobCAD-CAM CAM system.

Reverse Cut Direction

For all Wire EDM machining strategies, the wirepath cutting direction for the rough cut, skim cuts, and tab cut operations are all determined automatically to provide the most efficient cutting methods for the application. You can reverse the cutting direction for any tab cut or skim cut operations to gain control of the cutting direction for all operations.

Solid Simulation

Visualizing your wirepaths has never been easier or more accurate. Using the new remove chips animation, you can quickly find out if your parts will release from one another before performing any cuts at your machine.
