BobCAD-CAM offers BobCAM version 6 for SolidWorks, the company’s latest CAM add-in. This version provides access to new time-saving features, expanded toolpath control and a completely rebuilt Lathe module.

The software, which the company says was developed largely on customer feedback, further enhances CAM programming for users ranging from home-shop machinists to Tier 1 manufacturing companies. Additionally, BobCAM version 6 introduces network licensing, making it easier for shops to access their licensed software from any of their connected workstations.
