Autodesk Inventor HSM CAD/CAM Software 2017-06-21T10:36:04+00:00

Autodesk Inventor HSM CAD/CAM software helps CNC programmers, designers, and engineers rapidly produce machined parts designed in virtually any CAD system.

Whether you are working with multiple CAD formats or starting from pencil sketches, Inventor HSM helps you get up to speed and become productive within minutes using a truly integrated design to manufacturing solution. In addition to all the standard toolpath strategies for milling and turning operations, Inventor HSM includes advanced features such as adaptive clearing, integrated simulation and verification tools, and a powerful post processor system.

Adaptive Clearing

Adaptive clearing is an advanced roughing strategy that sets the bar for efficient, highvolume material removal. Using constant tool engagement and optimized cutter paths, Inventor HSM reduces roughing time by a factor of 4 or more compared to conventional roughing, and increases tool life by as much as a factor of 10, depending on material hardness. Enhanced multicore support and improved linking make adaptive clearing the most advanced adaptive roughing technology to date.

AnyCAD

AnyCAD is a CAD interoperability solution included in Autodesk Inventor that reduces the need to maintain multiple CAD systems and eliminates manual file translation and updates. Parts and assemblies can be selectively imported into Inventor from virtually any CAD system while keeping associativity. Design changes in the source CAD system get automatically updated in downstream data such as drawings and toolpaths, saving you valuable time and resources and minimizing costly translation errors.

Modern Architecture

Inventor HSM is designed to take advantage of latest workstation technologies to help you achieve superior performance, especially when working on large or complex designs.

Multiprocessor/multi-core support dramatically speeds up toolpath generation on supported hardware. Distributed CAM server helps maximize use of your computing power by utilizing idle PCs on the local network to reduce toolpath calculation time.

Stock simulation

Integrated stock simulation in Inventor HSM enables users to see stock being removed and to automatically check for shaft and clamp/ fixture collisions. Users can color the surface by tool number to inspect the resulting stock model, and they can slice the model to inspect different sections.

The target part comparison feature can be used to highlight rest and gouge areas with different colors. 3+2 machining is supported and multiple toolpaths can be verified in a single operation.

Toolpath simulation

After generating a toolpath, users can easily inspect results with the integrated backplot and inspection tool. Controls include simulation speed and direction, visibility and translucency of tool, shaft, tool holder, and coloring of rapid moves, lead moves, and cutting moves.

Use the advanced analysis tool to measure distances, or dynamically view all vital information about tools, and details such as feed/speed and estimated machining time. 3+2 machining is supported, and you can inspect multiple toolpaths in a single operation.

Tool lists and setup sheets

Tool lists, setup sheets and other production documents are automatically generated and can be exported in a variety of formats including HTML, XML, Microsoft® Excel®, and Microsoft® Word. Production documents are generated by the advanced Inventor HSM post processor with high degree of flexibility and user customization.

Inventor HSM Edit

Inventor HSM includes Inventor HSM Edit for inspecting and manually editing NC program files. Inventor HSM Edit provides a number of CNC code-specific functions, including line numbering/renumbering, XYZ range finder, and file compare. Inventor HSM Edit features a DNC link for reliable RS-232 communications with a variety of CNC controls.

Post processors

No CAM system is complete without a post processor that produces ready-to-run code tailored to your machine, control, and programming style. Inventor HSM uses a flexible, open, and exceptionally fast post processor to perform this critical task.

JavaScript programming language, enabling on-site customization by customers and resellers, resulting in a significant reduction in post development time. Inventor HSM comes with numerous generic post processor configurations. Each post processor is customizable to the user’s specific requirements. Our aim is to produce 100 percent ready-to-run code for your machine.
