Change Program Number for an NC File


When posting out a program inside of BobCAD, there is a number at the beginning of the program (for most machines this number starts with the letter "O"). That is called a program number. The default program number is set to 100 in BobCAD-CAM. This article will take you through the steps on how to change this number inside of BobCAD at the job level.


Step-by-Step Guide on Changing Program Number on Job Level.


1. Navigate to the “CAM Tree” and right-click on “Milling Job” ("Turning job", Mill Turn Job", "Wire EDM Job")

2. Select Current Settings


3. Inside the “Posting” tab on the left-hand column, you should find the “Number” box under "Program" section. Change the program number to what your machine controller accepts. Click OK when done.
