1) A 4′x8′ of MDF you can pick for about $35
2) A 3D photo of a cool pattern can be purchased of $0-50
3) A textured wall panel sells for $5-$15 a square foot

You could be making anywhere from $75-$395 machining these simple to make textured wall panels.

Step 1 Draw a 24″ x 24″ Rectangle
Step 2 Create / Modify Stock > 24″ x 24″
Step 3 Emboss texture> from image
Step 4 Re calculate
Step 5 Machine it
Step 6 Deliver to customer and get paid : )

Key points:

Using Shift Click for manual tab locations
Using Contour to set the start position of profile cutting.
Changing tool patterns to eliminate center drill from drilling feature
Using nesting files as a template for future nest.



We are offering a special MechMate promotion to add the nesting to your software. Please call me at 866-408-3226 X147 or PM me for more details.

If there are any additional questions about the nesting software please feel free to ask.

I am almost afraid to post.... So let's see what happens...

Hello Everyone!

Here are 3 videos to help you better understand key concepts of using BobCAD CAM to program your plasma machine.

This video goes over the CAD side of the software: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgvJvD4XZ5A

V27 Relase

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.


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!

http://youtu.be/9wDdg5b9oxo

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.
