It gets exciting when the Autodesk train arrives. The cargo is the 2016 release of Autodesk Product Design Suite, Autodesk Factory Design Suite, Simulation capabilities and Autodesk Inventor HSM, the fully integrated CAM solution that runs inside Inventor. If you are in the business of making things, this is the tools and applications for getting things done in the world of manufacturing.
Inventor HSM 2016… At the end of 2014 the developing team added 5-axis to the existing CAM family of 2.5D and advanced 3D that includes 5-axis tilt. For the 2016 release they have incorporated all the traditional turning operations. Turning operations: Roughing, profiling, facing, grooving, threading, parting and stock transfer. This in addition to some of the best simulation capabilities and of course the continued support for free post processors.
Running inside Inventor, Inventor HSM results in the most integrated, high quality, ease-of-use CAD/CAM package available. Autodesk CAM’s 2.5D Milling is free and 3D, 5D and turning can all be downloaded for 30 day trials here.
