BobCAD-CAM Releases New BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ V5 CNC Programming Software

BobCAD-CAM, Inc announced today the release of the new BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ V5 CNC programming software. The latest software includes more features, modules, and overall system improvements than ever before. This version adds two completely new add-on modules: Mill Turn, a CAM programming product, and BobART, an artistic CAD application.

“We’re all very excited about V5,” explained Greg Myers, Development Executive with BobCAD-CAM. “We gathered a lot of feedback as part of this build to find out what machinists felt was needed and where we could improve. I’m happy to report that we were able to roll out a lot of those key features in V5 and that the software should go a long way in making programming quicker and easier. It’s also great to introduce the new BobART package to give BobCAM users an artistic option and the Mill Turn add-on for handling the most complex of machining jobs.”

Overall System Enhancements
BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ operates as a plug-in product for the SOLIDWORKS™ design software. It offers advanced surfacing capabilities, Dynamic Machining Strategies™, an intuitive wizard driven interface, a realistic machine simulator, and can even generate g-code programming. It allows SOLIDWORKS™ users to go from designing part models to applying CAM machining operations without ever leaving the SOLIDWORKS™ interface.

Developers at BobCAD-CAM focused on adding features that increase control and reduce the amount of time machinists spend programming. New features include better surfacing toolpaths, smarter hole making capabilities, more tool types, new tabbing options, and much more.

New CNC Mill Turn CAM Software
BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ V5 marks the release of a brand new add-on for mill turn machining. Mill turn may also be called turn milling, multitasking, and can even refer to a lathe equipped with live tooling. The CAM module supports nearly all types of mill turn machines, including machines with Y axis capabilities and multiaxis machines that include a milling spindle.
