CAD-CAM for CNC Lathe allows you to design or import part geometry which you’ll assign toolpath strategies to using an intuitive, wizard guiding interface. BobCAD’s feature type programming makes it easy to control the direction of the cut and where on the part the toolpath is created.
New Pecking Options NEW FEATURE
Pecking Cycles are now available for center Drill, chamfer and reaming.

Eliminate bird nests with BobCAD’s new chip breaking option. Users can now customize their roughing cycles to chip break by defining the length of cut, time, or length of chip with this new option.
Collision Checking Holder Avoidance
Avoid violating your geometry features with tool holder or insert geometry. This compensation option ensure collision-free programming for V groves and other part features where standard inserts and holders could gouge your part.
Create thread on the OD, ID, Front Face and Back face of your parts. Supporting G32, G76 equivalent for straight or tapered threads. Acme, American National, British Standard Whitworth, Buttress, Metric, Sharep V, Square, Unified National.
Use the thread library to pick and call tap sizes, settings and tools. Utilizing the same workflow as the hole making wizard, users can quickly add multiple tools and operations to spot, drill ,tap holes on center line.
Feature Type Programming
Easily define where on your part geometry you want toolpath created using the feature type programming drop-down. Pick from OD, ID, Front Face & Back Face. Control right to left or left to right cutting based on region selection.
