Hi Taz
Thought I would forward the contents of a mail I received from BobCad for your information. I have not tried the software myself yet, I am too busy getting eCabs & Rolling nest under my belt. It looks very good and would probably be great for 3D work and signage. I get by very well with eCabs and DXF's for all my requirements manufacturing cabinetry etc.



I contacted you today about this Version 20 demo that you download; this
is full 2D&3D programming software package. We have over 50, 000
customers that use our software around the world, we have been in the
business for over 20 years now and we don’t have any yearly fee’s with
our package. This is a $4000 Cad & Cam package and the promotion that we
are running is $995 for the complete program this is also including
training material, this offer ends Friday, please feel free to contact
me with any questions. Thank you\"

I have been using bobcad/cam for many years on different machines. The software is very similar to autocad. It is very user friendly, you can learn it on your own, but if you want to get up and running right away I would get the training videos or take a training class.

As for pricing the software is always around 995.00 they run this promotion all the time. If you want to do sign work you should probably look at Bobart as well, it is a upgrade that will take images and make them into machineable lines.

If you have anymore questions you can email me at
