Production Release Downloads
CamBam 1.0 is now our official production release.
If you are new to CamBam 1.0 there are a lot of nice new features.
A huge thank you to all our beta testers, translators, and everyone who has contributed feedback and support to help make this release possible!
CamBam 1.0 for Windows
CamBam is now using the .NET framework version 4 as framework version 2 becomes end of life.
.NET Framework version 4 is usually installed by default on most newer PCs. For older computers this can be downloaded from here:
If you are unable to install .NET Framework 4 or later, please use CamBam 0.9.8
CamBam version 0.9.8 and V1.0 can be installed on the same computer, so you can run both to make sure the new version will work reliably with your old designs.
CamBam 0.9.8 licenses will work with this V1.0 release. The license is contained in a text file (CamBamPro.lic) within the CamBam programs folder. This file needs to be copied from 0.9.8 into the new CamBam 1.0 program folder.

These downloads provide 40 free, fully functional evaluation sessions.
To make sure the evaluation works correctly, after installation, right click the CamBam program shortcut and select 'Run as administrator'.
Even after the evaluation period has expired, you can continue to use CamBam to edit drawings and test your post processors and g-code,
however g-code output will be limited to 1000 lines and scripts and plugins will be disabled.
If you are happy with CamBam, a license key can be purchased from our online web shop
Script drawing objects
Script objects work like other drawing objects, but the geometry is created from a script.
This enables parametric designing as well as animations and simulations.
Bitmaps and Vectorization
Link external bitmaps into CamBam drawings and detect edges, which can be used for machining operations.
Mouse zoom, pan and rotate functionality work in the print preview window so the area of interest can be
positioned within the page.
Drawing and editing splines is now supported.
Migrating from CamBam 0.9.8
If you are upgrading from an earlier version and have customised post processors, style or tool libraries,
please ensure you have a backup copy of the CamBam system folder before installing this release.
CamBam 1.0 is a new major version, that will be installed in a new program folder and it will have it's own System Folder.
This enables CamBam 1.0 to be installed alongside version 0.9.8.
To copy settings such as styles, post processors, tool libraries and templates from version 0.9.8, copy relevant files from the old system folder location:
\ProgramData\CamBam plus 0.9.8\
\ProgramData\CamBam plus 1.0.0\
The Tools - Browse system folder menu item can be used to find the system folder location.
CamBam V1.0 requires the Microsoft .NET framework version 4.
CamBam has been tested on Windows versions from XP up to Windows 10.
