Tech Tuesday is a weekly blog that addresses some of the most common questions and concerns that I hear throughout the previous week from users of BobCAD-CAM software. Both customers and future customers are more than welcome to leave a comment on what they would like to see covered for the following Tech Tuesday. Enjoy!

On today's "How It's Made At BDP"- HE351 Wastegate solenoid plugs. Made from aluminum Hex bar stock on our Doosan Lynx 220SLYC Mill/Turn CNC machine in less then 2 minutes per part. #BDP #Beansdiesel #MadeintheUSA #Ellisontechnologies #Doosan #Bobcad

Complex programming demands from Mill Turn machines deserve a simple to use, powerful software. Users can program everything from 2 Axis turning to full 4 & 5 Axis simultaneous Milling. Take full control and easily program complicated parts like complex valves, oil drilling tools, medical components and much more. Let’s look at the different features users get to utilize with this dynamic software.
Mill Turn CNC Machine Compatibility
BobCAD-CAM supports nearly all Mill Turn, multitasking, live-C and Lathe, equipped with live tooling machine setups that may include multiple spindles, multiple turrets, milling heads, programmable steady rests, programmable tailstocks, part catchers and more.

2 Axis Programming
OD feature in cam  software
BobCAD’s Feature Programming makes it easy for new and experienced programmers to setup turning cycles for ID, OD, Front Face and Back Face of their parts. With the addition of undercut removal, constraints and extensions in BobCAD’s 2 Axis Turning cycles are robust, easy to use and powerful!


C Axis

Y Axis Milling
cam software y axis milling
Machine off of the centerline and use all 3 axes of your Mill Turn machine. Machine with Y, performing Helical Milling, Thread Milling, Profiling and more! Use all your 3D Toolpaths, taking full advantage of your machines capabilities.
5 Axis Milling Head

Milling head programming can be used on the main or sub-spindle, supporting positional or full range of motion programming.
Full Machine Simulation
cam software full machine simulation
Utilize the kinematics, full machine and tool definitions of your machine to test and confirm Mill Turn programming to avoid collisions before they happen to your physical machine.
