High-Performance CAD-CAM for CNC Turning Centers
BobCAD-CAM software for 2-Axis Lathe and turning centers offer powerful toolpaths that outperform traditional canned cycles. Lathe CAD-CAM makes it easy and fast to set up 2-Axis toolpaths for OD and ID roughing, finishing, threading, grooving, boring, drilling, cut-offs and more. This powerful CAD-CAM software is a complete CNC programming solution for all of your simple and complex part geometries.
NEW FEATURE: MachiningCloud Integration
Adding tools is easier than ever with our new MachiningCloud partnership. Import your full tool assemblies (insert and holder) directly into the tool library or crib, including round boring bars.
CAM Tree Enhancements
New workflow improves productivity, providing a better user experience for optimizing CNC Turing cycles and toolpath creation. Post and run faster with V34s new and improved CAM Tree navigation and workflow. Double click edit, auto blank, extended CAM Tree, posting fonts, single operation posting, CAM Tree notes and more.
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.
Toolpath Wizard Defaults
Fine-tune your 2 Axis lathe programming for a part, process, or piece of equipment with toolpath wizard defaults. Save your preferred toolpath settings, helping you program parts faster. Change the toolpath wizard setting(s), click save defaults and choose your template, it’s that easy.
Trim to Stock
Trim away toolpath outside of your operation stock resulting in more efficient toolpaths with shorter cycles times. Use BobCAD’s progressive lathe stock tracking to limit the area of toolpath creation.
New Pecking Options
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.
