New release for BobCAM for Rhino


Version 2 of BobCAM for Rhino is now available to download. With the release of V2, their new 5-axis premium module is now available for all BobCAD-CAM’s product families.  

New toolpath technology and workflow reduces programming time and simplifies processes while expanding machining capabilities—the ultimate toolpath bundle for job shop manufacturers programming 3, 4, or 5-axis CNC machines.

“I am so excited for users to their hands-on BobCAD-CAM’s new products. Every customer will find enhancements and new features to get their NC programs to the machine faster and easier! There was a lot of focus on the usability, all the way up to new cutting strategies for shops who are pushing machines to their limits.” Greg Myers, Director, R&D, BobCAD-CAM, Inc., developer of BobCAM for Rhino.

New efficiency and improvements:
  • Deburring. Automatically create toolpath to trim complex edges or apply chamfers/fillets to part feature edges when posting in 3, 4, or 5-axis.
  • Probing. Simplify and automate the process of programming, simulating, and posting CNC probing cycles.
  • Auto 3+2 Roughing. Index roughing for 5-axis using automatic, semi-automatic, or manual direction of approach.
  • 3-5 Axis Conversion. Apply automatic 5-axis tilting for 3-axis tool paths.
  • Turn Mill. Faster material removal for Mills and Mill-Turn Machines where both the stock and tool spin to increasing surface speed. Machine part profiles result in less chip consideration and faster cycle times.
  • Multiaxis Machining. New finishing strategies added to what was previously called Multiaxis Roughing.  Now users can choose from roughing and finishing options with specific tool paths for wall and floor finishing.
  • Multiblade. New advanced optimized operations for 5-axis machining of impellers and blisks.   Specific operations to rough and finish blades, hubs, and fillets.
  • Port Machining. New advanced optimized operations specific for CNC port machining require minimal user input.
BobCAM for Rhino works on Rhino 6 or greater. It is localized in eight language packs: English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Czech, Italian, and Portuguese.
