Version 28 of BobCAD-CAM’s flagship software is said to be compatible with all custom and specialty milling and turning tool shapes for CNC simulations. The software’s verification update enables users to draw the half profile of a rotating milling tool and define multiple cutting surfaces on the tool, if applicable. Previous versions allowed users to program with their custom or specialty tooling but now V28 offers users the additional ability to accurately simulate jobs using these types of tools. Users can visually inspect and confirm their CNC programming within the simulation interface, which is also included. These capabilities are also supported on turn-mill/multi-tasking CNC machine simulations using the Mill Turn CAD/CAM module.

  • Programming A Robot The Way You Program A CNC Machine Tool

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.

    Milling complex forms in hardened tool steel involves more than just fast, light cuts, says this maker of medical-related injection molds. Here are some of the ingredients of an effective hard milling process.

    The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.
