metal cube made with bobcad cnc softwareJames Shorkey is a longtime manual machinist in Colorado that is turning a new leaf and conforming to CNC machining. That’s why he got BobCAD for him and his intern. In a twist of irony, his new intern is teaching him about CNC machining while James is teaching him some manual machining. “My intern uses both BobCAD & Solidworks. I am getting better with my BobCAD-CAM software all the time, learning tricks, watching the tutorials. I think in a few years here I will have it mastered. I do a lot of work for the students with their research projects. There was another shop (in town), but it’s now an empty building because the owner retired. I drive BobCAD on a Bridgeport Mill with a Fadal control & in a couple of weeks, I’m getting a Ganesh CNC 2 axis Lathe with Fadal as well. We generate drawings and also take student drawings (importing them into Solidworks), using BobCAM to create programs, edit programs & run simulation. If it all runs smoothly on the computer screen then we are golden,” says James.

What exactly is Network Licensing?

Introduced by popular demand, BobCAD-CAM now offers Network Licensing. Gone are the days of purchasing a licensed copy of the software for each individual workstation. Instead, licenses only need to be purchased based on the number of stations you may need active simultaneously. Those licenses will then be stored on the server and available from any connected station, unified by one login and password for all stations.
