Posted May 12, 2021 4:35 pm   Published by    BobCAD-CAM ">

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’s CNC 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.

The new probing features offered in our CAM software includes 41 different probing cycles. By touching off your tools, setting your work offsets, and performing in-process measurements, programming for your probing cycles has never been easier.
There are many in-process measurement cycles including:

  • Single surface in X, Y, or Z
  • Web to measure the width/length of a part
  • Pocket to measure the width/length of a pocket
  • Bore to measure the diameter of holes
  • Boss to measure circular parts
  • Internal/External corners
  • 5-Point rectangle internal/external to measure length and width
  • Angled surfaces

With these new probing features, you can now program everything for your milling machine in BobCAD-CAM. Try the new probing features today!
