  • BobCAD CAM V27 New Release

    You asked, we listened! For our biggest release yet BobCAD-CAM V27 features many new enhancements and improvements that our customers requested as well as other useful tools we have been developing.

    New CAD Solid Action Tree enables users to modify any step of their solid creation

    Dynamic Drawing Makes simultaneous sketching and editing of values available to users

    New Surface and Solid Creation Tools give users on the fly extruding and modify cations of solid shapes

    New CAD Shape Library has 40 shapes for many common shapes to speed up the design process

    New 2D Boolean allows for faster editing of intersecting 2D geometry

    Project Edges to Z Plane Feature lets the user extract edges from a 3D model and flatten the geometry along the Z plane or a defined axis

    New Scaling Features

    New Extrude Boss and Cut Feature provides added flexibility to designing models

    New Shelling Feature allows users to hollow out a solid model leaving a thin walled solid on the remaining surfaces

    New Trim to Operation Stock option allows you to pick an STL to define the stock for the current operation

    New Project Curves Operation added to the Mill 3 Axis Pro module allows you to select one or more chains to project onto a 3D Model with the ability to compensate for
    the tool

    New Advanced Planar Option adds several new enhancements including steep/shallow, rest machining,and more!

    New Advanced Z Level Finish Operation adds several new enhancements including steep/shallow, rest machining, and more!

    V27 Videos

    In this video I show you how the new line at angle work when you need a tangent intersection. There are many times when re drawing a part from print, the print doesn't give you all the information needed to create the drawing. Like when you have a tangle line to an arc with an unknown end point. This new feature allows you to draw an angle line tangent to an Arc!

    As a BobCAD users I am sure you have come to appreciate the CAM tree and how it makes quick work of storing and changing your part programming. Now that we have a CAD History Tree in V27 we offer the same flexibility for your designs. You can create solids and make changes quickly and easily. Watch this video to learn more about our new CAD features!

    When working with wire frame drawings you may need to trim shapes into or out of each other. Because of this we have added 2D Booleans that use the same work flow as 3D Solid Booleans. The only different in the work flow is you have to rt click ok ( or space bar) after you select the first group of shapes. Again other useful tool for making quick work of creating wire frame profiles.

    In this video I walk through a sample 3D part. I use a sweep surface based on wire frame, and planar surface based on surface edges. Working with surface edges for design in a new feature in the V27. Once we model the part I lay down a roughing and Z level finish tool path. In the V27 Mill Pro we've added a Zig Zag option allowing the tool to cut back and forth following a profile, almost like a flow line. Once simulated, we go back to the model make some changes and update the tool path. Take a look!

    In the BobCAD CAM V27 we've added many new tools for our Mill Professional users. Most of which are aimed to reduce geometry creation to limit tool path. Angle ranges, linking updates, leadin -out updates operational stock are just some of the new features. What this video to learn more.
