Autodesk announced the commercial availability of Inventor HSM, which the company says helps machinists, designers and engineers turn their Inventor designs into manufacturable parts by generating best-in-class machining toolpaths directly inside Inventor.
“In the manufacturing world, quality is critical,” said Carl White, senior director of manufacturing engineering at Autodesk. “Inventor HSM will help users manufacture high quality finished parts, while saving valuable time and resources.”
Inventor HSM 2015 includes a full license of Inventor 2015 software. It includes flexible 2.5D, 3D, and 3+2 toolpath options and settings; simulation tools that help users verify the machining process before CNC programs are run on a machine; and highly customizable post-processors and a CNC editor that enable users to tailor their programs to their CNC machine.
Inventor HSM 2015 is available as a stand-alone product as well as desktop subscription.
