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.
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, MicrosoftÂ® ExcelÂ®, and MicrosoftÂ® Word. Production documents are generated by the advanced Inventor HSM post processor with high degree of flexibility and user customization.
