Machine shops around the globe are always looking for a competitive advantage to keep costs down and profits high. There are many ways to achieve that, but it starts with being able to expand your machining capabilities as they change. That is why modular CAD-CAM software from BobCAD is so beneficial to machinists who want a competitive edge.
What Makes the Software Modular?
The core structure of how the software is designed is what makes it modular, containing functionalities that are accessible independently from one another. Your first level can be a simple 2D or 2.5 Axis Milling system. As your needs change, you can add additional modules in “tiers”. Those modules will then work with other CNC machines like Plasmas, Lasers, Waterjets, CNC Routers and Burning Machines.

How Does It Benefit Me?
Integrated CAD and CAM is one of the best ways for shops to operate at peak performance, centralizing all your machining needs and allowing you to add modules when needed. For example, a shop that specializes in 3 Axis work may have a need in the future to add 4 Axis capabilities. All they have to do is purchase the 4 Axis module, like BobCAD’s V30 4 Axis Standard or 4 Axis Pro, getting only the functions they paid for. It’s that simple. Seems pretty beneficial to me; what do you think?
