BobCAD-CAM is known worldwide as the leader in powerful and affordable CAD and CAM software.
Largely considered the “Machinist Best Friend” when it comes to creating toolpath, simulation, and posting g-code programs for modern 2- 5 Axis CNC equipment.
Offering a broad range of CAD/CAM solutions, recent product released includes a stand alone CAD/CAM solution, CAM software for SOLIDWORKS and CAM software for RHINO 3D.
Best known for it’s price to performance ratio, BobCAD-CAM is the CAD/CAM solution manufacturers turn to for powerful toolpath technology at affordable prices.
Unlike many modern professional applications, BobCAD enjoys few if any benefits from hyper-threading or additional CPU cores. A workstations CPU clock speed is a much more important determinant of the experience you will have in BobCAD than the number of cores it has. However, one must keep in mind that if using other applications along side the software such as SolidWorks or Rhino, you will need to consider a CPU with 8+ cores in order to optimize overall performance.
In simple terms you need a CPU with the fastest clock speed possible and at least four cores. We have determined 16GB to 32GB to be a reasonable amount of RAM but more complex projects might take advantage of 64GB. There is also absolutely no doubt that Quadro graphic cards provide the best performance for all type of CAD-CAM related applications.
