Turning: Inventor HSM features all the traditional turning toolpaths, including facing, roughing, grooving, threading, drilling and profiling. For drilling and hole making, choose between pre-programmed machining cycles and canned cycles, or use a combination of both. Inventor HSM supports programming twin-turret and twin-spindle lathes using all of the traditional turning operations. Mill/Turn operations are supported when combined with the 2D or 3D milling option.
AnyCAD with Autodesk Inventor is a CAD interoperability solution that removes or reduces the need to purchase and maintain multiple CAD systems for file exchange and support. AnyCAD supports most CAD file formats without the need for file translation, saving you valuable time and resources and avoiding costly errors. Keep your toolpaths up-to-date with notifications of design changes, and easily collaborate with all stakeholders, regardless of their 3D CAD tool.
Seamless workflow between CAD and CAM environments using intuitive navigation tools integrated into the Inventor user interface.
Adaptive Clearing: this advanced roughing strategy, sets the bar for efficient, high volume material removal using constant tool engagement and optimized cutter paths to reduce cycle times, minimize tool and machine wear, and produce quality finished parts. Enhanced multi-core support and improved linking make Adaptive Clearing the most advanced adaptive roughing technology to date.
Full model associativity: Define machining geometry and parameters by selecting entities directly from the Inventor design, maintaining full associativity between the Inventor models and machining operations. Changes to the design are automatically reflected in the toolpath. Late design changes no longer result in delayed delivery or introduction of last-minute programming errors.
Powerful Post Processor system: Generate CNC code at incredible speeds of up to 400,000 lines of code per second, cutting down wait time for CNC programmers to almost a fifth of what it takes in other comparable CAM solutions
Distributed CAM reduces calculation time by allowing users to harness additional computing resources (CPU cores) across their local area network.
Modern architecture: take advantage of native multi-core kernel and a Post Processor System, which leverage the maximum computing power of your workstation or PC and allow you to continue programming jobs while toolpath calculations and CNC code are being processed in the background. The native 64-bit architecture allows improved support for working with large models and assemblies.
Full-featured CNC Editor includes NC functions, math functions, side-by-side file compare, CNC templates, graphical backplotter, and serial communications for transferring your CNC programs to RS232 based CNC controls.
Integrated simulation and verification tools allows users to inspect generated toolpaths directly in relation to the Inventor model. Use stock simulation and tool simulation, enhanced by visibility and colouring controls, to accurately verify every aspect of the machining process and to ensure minimal wastage on the production run.
