BobCAD-CAM Features


Utilise 100's of easy-to-use geometry creating and editing tools to develop sophisticated part models quickly and efficiently. A wide range of powerful wireframe, surface, and solid model design tools deliver the performance you need to design everything from simple flat patterns to complex 3D models with intricate details. The BobCAD-CAM design software is easy enough for the new and occasional users, yet powerful enough to meet the needs of the advanced designer.


2D Milling

Offering a wide variety of powerful operations for 2D / 2 ½ D cycles. Work from wireframe sketches, surface edges or faces. More powerful and efficient than conversational programming. Capture and reuse machining processes on future projects to reduce overall programming time, while working directly on user created or customer supplied CAD files.


Hole Making

2, 3 , 4 and 5 axis hole making is simple with BobCAD’s intuitive hole making wizards. Choose from Standard Drilling, Cross Drilling, or Multiaxis Drilling. Select points, arcs or solid models to define hole locations, sizes and depths. Users can quickly Spot, Drill, Tap and Counterbor with a single machining feature. Post your holes in separate moves or canned cycles.


Corner Slow Down
NEW FEATURE (optional)

Advanced federate mapping to slow cutting motion down as the tool approaches corners or sharp changes in the direction. Apply corner slowdown on internal corners, external corners or all corners and use custom settings to eliminate corner blowout or overloading your tools.


Side Roughing Patterns
NEW FEATURE (optional)

You can now choose from single direction cutting (zig) or bi direction cutting (zig zag) patterns with sorting control that results in more efficient toolpath.


Pecking Options


With prior versions pecking was limited to the Drill Hole operation alone. V33 now adds pecking options to additional operations: Center, Counterbore, Chamfer and Ream all support pecking.



Get a real view of what’s happening on the machine before you ever cut a chip. BobCAD’s solid simulation is loaded tools to validate your machining process, gouge check, find left over stock and much more.
