Understand how to evaluate projects for 3D printing and CNC machining
Understand the complementary nature of 3D printing and CNC machining
Understand the capabilities and economics of 3D printing and CNC machining technology
Understand how to implement a complementary 3D printing and CNC machining program to prototype and produce finished parts
Some people need parts to visually communicate a design; others need physical parts for functional testing. Either way, this class is designed to show users how 3D printing and CNC (computer numerical control) machining are complementary technologies for turning digital designs into real parts. We will also cover which one works most effectively for different situations. We will use specific examples, including prismatic parts, 3D parts with sculpted and organic shapes, and assemblies.

Anthony Graves is the product manager for the Autodesk, Inc., CAM Team. Anthony joined Autodesk through the acquisition of HSMWorks ApS, developer of integrated CAM Solutions for SolidWorks software. Anthony has hosted numerous CAM talks at Autodesk University on subjects that include integrated CAM, integrated design to manufacturing, the complementary nature of 3D printing, and computer numerical control machining for prototype and production manufacturing, as well as other subjects key to customers who are looking to implement integrated workflows around manufacturing.
Learn to extend the power of Autodesk, Inc.'s, fully integrated CAM Solution for Inventor software by complementing it with Vault software. You will learn about the workflows used to create machine code for the CNC (computer numerical control) machining of your parts, and you will also learn the benefits of using an integrated CAM system. Data management is often a nightmare for companies that maintain design separately from files containing manufacturing information such as toolpaths. In this class you will see just how easily you can maintain both in a single file, using Inventor HSM software and Vault software.
This class is designed for existing users of Inventor HSM software and Inventor HSM Pro software, and it will focus on tips, tricks, and training so users can get the most out of Inventor HSM software, the integrated CAM Solution for Inventor software.
How do designers' and engineers' models have an impact on machining and manufacturing? This class explores topics that need consideration throughout the design and engineering phase of each new project, including feature selection and issues surrounding modeling with parts versus assemblies.
