Cost-Effective CAD/CAM Software for Multi-Axis Milling, Turning
Westec 2017: BobCAD-CAM will be demonstrating version 30 of its flagship product.
BobCAD-CAM will be demonstrating version 30 of its flagship product. Designed as a low-cost CAD/CAM option, the software enables two- to five-axis milling and turning, two- and four-axis wire EDM, and sheet optimization for improved workflow and part programming in a variety of applications.
As with previous versions, the company says its products are the result of listening to its customers and making enhancements based on feedback.
Finally there is an alternative to ballnose endmills for finishing 3D parts. The combination of finishing tools shaped to provide more cutting surface and a CAM system with the ability to apply them on a five-axis machining center can dramatically reduce finishing cycle times while delivering better surface finishes.
What is a post processor? A software engineer from CNC Software, makers of Mastercam programming software, explains the different types of CNC post processors, the different types of post processor users and the different levels of functionality in post processors.
This CNC capability is helping make machine tools move far faster, and more accurately, than ever before. Here's how it works.
