The NEW Machine Simulation PRO Add-on offers state of the art toolpath simulation technology for BobCAD-CAM CNC programming software. The Machine Simulation PRO Add-on can be easily added to any of the latest BobCAD-CAM & BobCAM for SOLIDWORKS™ core CAD-CAM products giving you full advantage of all the NEW advanced simulation technology benefits!
BobCAD-CAM now offers probing cycles with the new Probing module! Everything in the machine shop is about precision, and because of this probing is becoming an indispensable part of machine shop. Being able to verify work and tool offsets with 100% accuracy, check tools for breakage, and even inspect finished parts can save and enormous amount of time and money, and now BobCAD-CAM has everything you need to bring your shop to the next level.
Updates have been made to many of the CAD functions that require the selection of other geometry. Many of the CAD functions require picking other geometry to perform the function; Subtract this from that, or, use this as my Attachment Point, this as my Sweep Profile, and this as my Sweep path are examples. In either case, the order of the selections plays a big role in the result, and, in the past, getting the order wrong would usually result in canceling the function and reopening the function, just to try again. With our new and improved interface, we have eliminated these issues with list boxes for the selected geometry. These list boxes have controls to delete geometry or even reverse chains and adjust the order of the selected geometry when necessary. This gives you an unprecedented amount of control over selection of geometry and the result of the function. The Sweep and Cross Section functions are used as examples below.
One of the huge benefits of the new selection aspect of these functions is being able to try different things to see how they affect the preview of the result before finalizing. The Sweep function, for instance, will give different results depending on the Attachment Point being used. With the new selection functionality, you could pick the Attachment Point, Sweep Profile, and Sweep Path to see the Preview, and then, delete only the Attachment Point, in order to pick a different Attachment Point to test another result. The functions with updated picking are as follow
Surfaces- Planar, Extrude Curve, Extrude Surface, Revolve, Sweep, Cross Section, Skin, Offset, 3 Edge, 4 Edge, Multisided Patch, Fillet, Intersection Curves, Break Surface, Swung, Ruled
Solids- Fillet, Add, Subtract, Intersect, Extrude Boss, Extrude Cut, Split, Shell, Imprint
