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 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. If you missed last week’s Tech Tuesday, click here.
Our BobCAD-CAM V31 CAM software comes loaded with industry-leading pocket patterns that are helping machinists cut cycle times down while maintaining a crisp, smooth finish. In the Advanced Pocket, we have three brand new patterns to offer; Offset Pocket Out, Morph Spiral and Parallel Pocketing. Let’s take a quick look at what these new patterns are doing for shops to stay ahead of the competition.
Advanced Offset Pocket Out

Morph Spiral Cutting for Pockets
Here by popular demand, a new pattern for the 2 Axis Advanced Pocket. This cutting pattern exists to maximize the efficiency of the offset pocket. It uses a morph spiral motion to reduce direct linking between tool passes. This allows your tool to stay engaged in the material longer and more efficiently.
This traditional pocketing pattern uses a zig-zag method to work its way back and forth to clear material within the pocketing boundary.
That’s all we have for this week’s article! These brand new Advanced Pocket Patterns are delivering machinists lower cycle time and better part finishes. If you are interested in seeing what these patterns can do to maximize your shop’s productivity & bottom line, download a copy of our V31 CAM software and try them out today.
