BobCad – 2.5D Turning (Fanuc, Siemens, Heidenhain)

To ensure a positive learning experience course size is limited to 6 attendees.

Cost of course is £600.00 + VAT per attendee.


BobCad is a CAD/CAM system that uses Geometry, DXF and Solid Model Imports to easily make ISO code programs used to manufacture components of basic & complex shapes. The use of BobCad can assist in minimising programming times on CNC lathes.

At the Mills CNC Training Academy we offer 4 different BobCad courses - BobCad 2.5D Milling, BobCad 2.5D Turning, BobCad 3D Solid Milling and BobCad 3D Solid Turning.

Applicants must already be well versed in Engineering and able to read Drawings. Knowledge of ISO Programming and a good understanding of Mathematics would be advantageous.
