BobCAD-CAM Mill software

Easily Program Any Part

BobCAD-CAM software for milling delivers advanced 2.5, 3, 4, & 5 axis cutting capabilities with a fully integrated CAD design system that allows you to seamlessly transition from designing your part geometry to assigning advanced toolpaths. The CAD-CAM software for milling offers powerful toolpath options that perform high speed machining and multiaxis cutting operations, taking full advantage of your CNC milling machine’s capabilities. It provides CNC programming tools that deliver speed and efficiency to help you achieve precision parts in fewer steps.

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.

MILL FEATURES

BobCAD-CAM milling software delivers the functionality you need to program everything from simple engraving, profile, pocket and hole cycles, to complex simultaneous 4 & 5 axis milling routines. It incorporates a full range of sophisticated, efficient and modern machining strategies through a simple wizard-driven interface that makes programming quicker & easier, even for new and occasional users. Dynamic Machining Strategies™ minimize your programming while advanced solid simulation lets you test and confirm your work, giving you confidence in your part programming.

Standard File Translators

Compatible with a large variety of industry-standard file formats, giving you the flexibility needed when working with client files. (DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP, SAT, 3DM, X_T, X_B, SLDPRT, STL)

Reporting Tools

Standard reporting tools provide insight to your part programming that aid in processing, planning, quoting and toolpath execution.

Post Processor Library

A large library of downloadable, user-editable post processors that support machine types, configuration and controllers on old & new machine tools.

4/5 Axis Milling

True, full-featured simultaneous toolpath strategies for advanced multiaxis part programming. Controlling tool tilt, avoid areas and feed rate mapping that unlocks the full potential of your 4 & 5 axis CNCs.

Hole Making

Program through, blind and cross holes using your machine's canned cycles or long code. Built-in thread library for sizes and setting when tapping or thread milling.

Solid Simulation

Utilize your machine’s configuration & kinematics to test and confirm your mill programming before ever cutting a chip. Use it to view the complete milling process, detect machined part deviations & collisions, calculate cycle times, and more!

2D/3D Toolpath

Offering a wide variety of powerful Toolpath strategies for 2, 2 ½ and 3D cycles. More powerful and efficient than conversational programming.

Multiple Job & Multiple Setups

Program multiple machining centers and part operations in a single Job Tree. Easily create setups for any part orientation using BobCAD-CAM’s dynamic part origin to define the toolpath’s work offset.
