Laser, Plasma, & WaterJet
High Performance CAD-CAM for CNC Laser, Plasma, & WaterJet Machines
BobCAD-CAM CNC programming software for laser, plasma, and waterjet machines offers powerful 2-5 axis cutting capabilities with a fully integrated CAD system that allows you to transition seamlessly from creating your part model to assigning advanced toolpath strategies for your g-code programming. The CAD-CAM software offers a variety of tool options to give you complete control over how your parts are cut.
NEW FEATURE: JOB TREE TEMPLATES
Shortcut your setup time with BobCAD’s new Job Tree Templates. Automatically load user defined stock size , origin and standard machining features all a single mouse click.
LASER, PLASMA & WATERJET FEATURES
CAM Tree Enhancements
New workflow improves productivity, providing a better user experience for optimizing Shape Cutting Cycles for Laster Plasma Waterjet toolpath creation. Post and run faster with V34s new and improved CAM Tree navigation and workflow.
Step through your toolpath using backplot, a graphic aid to which helps you understand where the tool starts, what direction its cutting and more. Choose from 3 display modes with the option show or hide the holder and insert.
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.
Quickly create common fabrication parts using one of BobCAD’s predefined shapes . Customize dimensions to bring your shape into size. Change it’s origin, reference location, flip in X or Y, even add a custom rotation value. Shapes are listed in the CAD history tree allowing users to make adjustments.
