  3. 3. 0oln~(AM free Manage! Solid CAD Action Tree The Solid Tree now added to BobCAD-CAM allows users to modify any step in their solid creation. Now every solid / surface creation tool is added to the Solid Tree and is fully associated to the geometry used to create the solid model, allowing users to easily modify and make adjustments to their model whenever needed. | Z[Easier CAD Model Editing IZ[Stream| ine Collaboration between users IZ[Organize CAD Moves The CAD Tree allows you to make a modification to a drawing and then automatically rebuild the part model. This makes working with and editing complex drawings simple.
  4. 4. Dynamic Drawing Features Many of the 2D geometry creation tools have been enhanced to allow simultaneous sketching and editing of values giving the user a better solution to draw parts they want more quickly. They Can utilize both sketching and entering of values at the same time, instead of having to switch modes within the functions. | Z[Greater Flexibility in CAD @©flfiEi This is also expanded to the Solid creation, in which a majority of the solid and surface creation tools allow the user to dynamically drag things close to the dimension they are looking for, then editing the values to the exact values they want!
