BobCAD-CAM CAD Design Software

With a wide range of powerful wireframe, surface, and solid model design tools, BobCAD-CAM design software delivers the performance you need to generate everything from simple flat patterns to complex 3D models with intricate details. Our design software is easy enough for the new and occasional user, yet powerful enough to meet the needs of the advanced designer.
BobCAD-CAM CAD Design Software

Easily Program Your 2D & 3D Parts!

BobCAD-CAM software for milling delivers advanced 2.5, 3, 4, & 5 axis cutting capabilities with a fully integrated CAD design system that allows you to seamlessly transition from designing your part model to assigning advanced milling toolpaths. The CAD-CAM software for milling offers powerful toolpath options to allow you to perform high speed machining and multiaxis cutting operations that take full advantage of your CNC milling machine’s capabilities. BobCAD-CAD for milling provides CNC programming tools that deliver speed and efficiency to help you achieve fewer steps, better cuts, and more profits.

Powerful Standard File Translators

Powerful Standard File TranslatorsBobCAD-CAM software is compatible with most common file formats to give you the flexibility to accept a wide variety of file types from your clients. (DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP, SAT, 3DM, X_T, X_B, SLDPRT, STL)

CAD History Based Design Tree

CAD History Based Design TreeThe CAD Design Tree acts as a history of your model creation and allows you to go back to any step in your process to make modifications to your design.


LayersCAD allows you to define and organize groups of geometry using layers that can be easily turned on and off to give you enhanced design and viewing control of your model. The Select By Layer functionality offers a convenient means of selecting sections of your geometry quickly and efficiently.

Complete Part Dimensioning & Inspection Power

Complete Part Dimensioning & Inspection PowerWhether you designed or imported a client’s file, BobCAD-CAM makes it easy to measure geometry, create part prints, and generate inspection reports so you can easily understand and communicate part geometry.

Project to Z Plane

Project to Z PlaneThe Extract Edges feature allows you to create wireframe geometry from the edges of your surfaces or solid models. Once you have your wireframe, you can use the Project to Z Plane feature to flatten the wireframe geometry to a user-defined location on the Z plane.

Cross Section Viewing

Cross Section ViewingCross Section Viewing allows you to inspect the internal details of your solid model as if it were cut straight across any plane. This powerful viewing feature also gives you the ability to generate wireframe geometry of the cross section where the plane intersects with the part.

Dynamic Drawing

Full Machine SimulationDynamic drawing offers the control and flexibility needed to easily create your part geometry. This powerful feature gives you the ability to push and pull surfaces and solid model geometry to quickly adjust part dimensions. It also allows you to easily move and rotate your parts around the workspace, which helps to speed up the design process.

Snap Increment

Snap IncrementAll dynamic drawing functions include a snap increment function, which acts as a uniform grid in the workspace. This allows you to define snap increments based on distances or angles for rotation functions. This feature creates a whole new level of efficiency for dynamic drawing by greatly reducing the number of clicks and data entry modifications.

Wireframe Creation Tools

Wireframe Creation ToolsBobCAD-CAM offers a wide variety of easy to use 2D geometry tools such as Points, Lines, Arcs, Splines, Offsets, and Parallel Lines to sketch your parts. You’ll also have access to commonly used wireframe shapes such as Rectangles, Ellipses, Gears, Cams, Sprockets, and Bolt Hole Patterns.

Shape Library

Shape LibraryThe CAD design software provides 40 preprogrammed commonly used fabrication shapes that can be easily modified to fit the specific needs of the design at hand.

Text Tools

Text ToolsEasily add text to your drawings with tools like Text Along A Curve, Extrude Text, and Project To Curve for 3D surfaces. The software allows you to work with standard Windows® fonts & open fonts or select from a library of BobCAD-CAM centerline fonts.

Wireframe Editing Tools

Wireframe Editing ToolsThe CAD software offers powerful wireframe editing tools to give you the control needed to easily manipulate part geometry using functions for scaling, trimming, moving, rotating, and more. (Drag Corner, Trim & Extend, Clean Up & Optimize, Make Arcs Tangential, Erase Doubles, Stretch, Deform, Extract Edges, Mirror, Rotate, 3D Rotate, Translate, Scale, Nonuniform Scaling, Explode (Lines, Arcs), Project Curves, Booleans (Add, Subtract, Intersect))

Solid Model Creation Tools

Solid Model Creation ToolsBobCAD-CAM provides the tools you need to easily create your solid models using primitive shapes like Sphere, Cube, Cone, Cylinder, Torus, and Fillet.

Solid Model Editing Tools

Solid Model Editing ToolsCAD delivers robust solid model editing tools like Extrude Boss, Extrude Cut, Split, Shell, Booleans, and more so you easily can manipulate your models for fast and efficient 3D part creation.

Surface Creation Tools

Surface Creation ToolsThere are 15 intuitive surface creation tools within BobCAD-CAM for 3D modeling including Rectangular Plane, Circular Plane, Planar, Extrude Curve, Extrude Surface, Revolve, Sweep, Cross Section, Skin, Offset, 3 Edge, 4 Edge, Multisided Patch, Swung, and Ruled.

Surface Editing Tools

Surface Editing ToolsCAD allows you to easily add, subtract, and stitch surface geometry with tools like Fillet, Extend, Intersection Curves, Untrim Surface, and Break Surface for fast model modifications and repairs.

The all-new Version 29 CAD-CAM software makes CNC programming faster, easier, and more efficient than ever before. It builds on 30 years of CAD-CAM innovation which includes a powerful 2D & 3D CAD design system, an easy to use wizard driven CAM Programming interface, Dynamic Machining Strategies™, advanced 2-5 axis high speed adaptive toolpath capabilities, realistic simulations, and much more.
