In this Intermediate Inventor HSM class Application Engineers from Autodesk will walk through the process of Automating the programming process in Inventor HSM using templates. as well as programing complex mill/turn and 5 axis components.
I’m an engineering technology professional who works as a trusted adviser to manufacturing companies specializing in productivity and efficiency gains to increase the bottom line. My area of expertise revolves around maximizing throughput of engineering through the optimization of People, Processes & Technologies (Lean Engineering). I do this through recommending and implementing the proper engineering tools (Autodesk CAM emphasis) to get the job done most effectively and efficiently, without losing sight of affordability.
This class will cover the advanced capabilities within the post-processor system that is part of Fusion 360 software and Autodesk HSM software. We'll have a look at specific examples to illustrate the advanced features available and how we can best utilize them. We'll go through the post API and leave room for technical questions on how to best approach complex problems. And you can, of course, request new features that you've been missing. The designer of the post-processor system, Rene Fonseca, will present the class.
This class will cover the fundamental concepts of 2D machining, including high-value best practices, tips, and tricks from product experts. Attendees should expect to learn full 2D workflows, and conceptually understand how to generate and manipulate 2D toolpaths in Fusion 360 software.
This class will cover the core concepts of multiaxis programming in Fusion 360 software, including positional and simultaneous 5 axis-areas of the CAM workspace that can add significant value, but are often ignored for the more accessible 2D and 3D toolpaths. Pick up tips, tricks, and best practices from product experts. Attendees should expect to learn full multiaxis workflows, including generating, containing, and controlling complex toolpaths.
Learn how the new Fusion 360 Production software can take your job shop digital. This class is a beginner level. You will learn how to get real-time production visibility; how to schedule work; and how to track, plan, and monitor the job shop floor with Fusion 360 Production via a web browser and your mobile device.
This class will cover the fundamental concepts of turning in Fusion 360 software. Product experts will share their tips, tricks, and best practices. Attendees should expect to learn full turning workflows, including generating, containing, and making fine adjustments to turning operations.
Examine toolpath options in Autodesk HSM software by delving into how each toolpath functions and how that impacts their applications. Explore which toolpaths are appropriate in various situations and how to use the strengths of each toolpath to achieve superior results. Look at some ways to automate these tasks to speed up the process. Ultimately, the goal is to empower users to use Autodesk HSM software to make better parts in less time.
Amish Solanki and Laurens Wijnschenk will showcase various advanced 5-axis toolpaths and work-holding strategies for 3+2 and 5-axis parts using Fusion 360 software and Autodesk HSM software. This will be a small guide that will help you program your parts and tips on work-holding tools and setups.
This class will cover the core concepts of 3D programming in Fusion 360 software, including valuable tips, tricks, and best practices from product experts. Attendees should expect to learn full 3D workflows, including generating, containing, and manipulating a variety of 3D roughing and finishing toolpaths. Users will leave with an understanding of what it takes to utilize Fusion 360 to quickly and effectively program parts. We'll highlight the power and flexibility of integrated CAM using Fusion 360, providing real-world scenarios in the manufacturing industry.
This class will cover the fundamental concepts of programming in HSMWorks, Inventor HSM, and Fusion 360. Attendees should expect to learn core concepts necessary for programming any part as well as general best practices from seasoned machinists and product experts.
Inventor software for mechanical design and 3D CAD (bundled with Autodesk HSM software) is a powerful manufacturing platform that includes many technologies that can be used to improve machining productivity. In this class, we'll go through techniques and workflows to give you some ideas to improve your CAM programming efficiency and increase machine shop productivity. You can use iLogic to create configurable part\work holding templates, which let you model your setups very quickly and efficiently, ensuring accurate simulation and safety. You can harness the tolerance engine inside Inventor software to drive your machined dimensions, letting you make easy adjustments after the first-off part. CAM probing operations (on capable machines)-driven by the toleranced dimensions in the CAD model-let the machine perform its own quality assurance, and even re-machine out-of-spec features. You will get the most out of this class if you have a working knowledge of Autodesk HSM software.
High Efficiency Roughing or HER is arguably one of the most talked about and exciting technologies (and machining techniques) to hit the machining world in the last decade. However, as vendors rush to define terms like high speed machining (HSM) and high efficiency machining (HEM), business owners and CNC programmers are left struggling to make sense of it all. This presentation is designed to educate attendees about high efficiency roughing and how this powerful machining strategy can reduce cycle time and help mold makers increase profits.
