Job Templates are designed to allow you to load in a job which has any amount of job items saved to it. Literally anything that is in your job when it is saved will be loaded as the template the next time it is used.
If you have a model that does not align with the default UCS when loading in the part, you may need to align your stock with respect to the model on the Stock Definition page.
The Machine Setup for Lathe is defined using SolidWork’s native Coordinate Systems. This article provides instructions on how to setup these coordinate systems in SolidWorks.
The Capture Picture (Graphics Area) and Capture Video command are both able to record information about the remaining stock that is being left over after machining out the part file.
This document goes over how to adjust the cutting direction and cutting side of the geometry for a Profile Rough, Profile Finish or Chamfer Mill Operation.
This document is a walk-through on how to customize the User Interface for BobCAD.
This document will explain how the “Fit Text to a Curve” function works inside of BobCAD
This document describes the differences between the cutting extents for the 3 axis pro toolpaths. The Cutting Extents options change where the boundary is created to determine how the toolpath is calculated on the model (where the tool cuts at the boundary).
The document will show a step-by-step of how to step up a tool to reverse the X sign in the G-Code. This will be necessary if your machine uses negative X values to move towards the center of rotation. You will change the G-Code by checking off the box that says “Reverse Sign” in the tool library.
This document will walk you-through how to create surfaces and how to stitch surfaces together to create one solid model. This will allow you to use the model with other Create 3D functions to modify the model further.
