BobCAD-CAM, Inc. released CAD CAM software, version 33. Now available for download, v33 continues to raise the functionally bar providing tools and technology CNC manufacturers need most to improve productivity and efficiency while staying competitive in today’s ever-changing marketplace.
Advancements in Tooling & Toolpaths
BobCAD-CAM v33 makes it easier to customize the tool library with imported 3rd party tool lists. MachiningCloud is the first partnership to take advantage of the new XML import option for directly import tools and tool assemblies from their online platform. V33 adds Barrel Mills to available tool types for 3, 4, and 5 axis toolpaths. V33 makes 3D surface machining faster with it’s new steep shallow operation which calculates finishing toolpaths in a fraction of traditional 3D finishing toolpaths.
CNC Measuring Cycles
BobCAD-CAM v33 adds Probing to its product family, supporting 41 cycles for tools setters and measuring cycles. Improve shop productivity by programming probe cycles from the CAM Tree. Geometry interaction with override makes it easy to customize probing cycles for tools, work offsets and part features.
Hole Machining Automation
BobCAD-CAM v33 adds automation tools that speed up programming for holes. Machining features are automatically created based on a customizable set of rules found in the knowledge base. Hole Feature Recognition makes finding and programming hole cycles faster and easier in V33.
BobCAD-CAM v33 adds new features that simplify workflow for 2D and 3D design. Better viewing with the addition of keyboard shortcuts and Views to Active UCS. Easier moving of geometry with Align to Coordinate System feature and Faster hole design with Advanced Holes.
