Learn about the wide variety of machines available today, from simple 3-axis mills to complex 5-axis machining centers, and from simple lathes to multitasking turn-mill centers, wire electrical discharge machining (EDM), and more. See how the world’s leading feature-based CAM software handles all of these machine types. This session features FeatureCAM.
I am a Technical Consulting Manager for North America, I currently look after all training and support for North America for PowerMill, FeatureCAM, PartMaker, PowerShape, PowerInspect, and ArtCAM. I joined Autodesk through the Delcam acquisition in 2014, having joined Delcam as an Applications Engineer in 2012. My work and education history includes work in manufacturing as a machinist, programmer, and a technical instructor, as well as a business management background. I specialize in FeatureCAM and PowerMill with practical experience programing Aerospace and industrial application products for CNC machining.
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.
If we are talking about the Future of Making Things-it being here already-think robots. Learn more about automation of your machine, what hurdles you'll face, and what you'll gain. Because there's much to gain, even after you've fully optimized your process. We are/have been developing our own robot cells with a Universal Robotics UR10 and a 100-kilogram Kuka Robot-2 very different approaches to the same problem.
Come to an overview of the current state of additive manufacturing (3D printing), and see how manufacturers are using the key benefits of the technology to design products differently. This session will also provide insight into the various Autodesk technologies that help users exploit additive manufacturing.
In this class, attendees will understand the benefits of having a 3D-defined model as a source to move to smart manufacturing. They will also learn how to apply the new Inventor 2018 software 3D Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) and 3D annotations to models.
This class will be an overview of how managing production within the Autodesk manufacturing ecosystem lets seamless workflows and real-time insight into production status. We will demonstrate a workflow- starting in design within Autodesk CAD Solutions, moving to programming with Autodesk CAM Solutions, demonstrating production tracking and quality assurance in Fusion 360 Production, and showing how production data can be fed back into design and programming to increase overall production speed and efficiency. These clear communication channels can dramatically reduce the amount of overhead that job shops need to manage by presenting the right information to the right people at the right time. This is the benefit of operating within the Autodesk network.
This class will describe the workflows that Optomec uses to translate CAD designs into printed features on existing parts or surfaces. We will cover specific additive-manufacturing challenges that are related to Aerosol Jet printing and how we have used Autodesk, Inc., packages to address our needs. We will further explore the subtle differences between additive and subtractive manufacturing and how Autodesk has worked to address the philosophical differences in an easy-to-understand way. Attendees will develop a deeper knowledge of the use of Autodesk products for additive manufacturing and how they can be adapted to suit their specific additive requirements. Attendees will also learn about the differences between additive and subtractive methodologies and how they apply to CAD and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) development as a whole. This session features AutoCAD and FeatureCAM.
When computer numerical control (CNC) machining parts, it is often desirable to create parts with a fine or smooth surface finish. This becomes even more important when machining for the mold-making or die-making industries. This class will provide tips and strategies for getting the highest-quality surface finishes from your CNC machining. Some areas of discussion will include tooling and holders for maximum rigidity, mill and control parameters to check for optimum surface finish, CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) software parameters and strategies that lead to better finishes, and milling tolerance and point distribution. This class is designed to capture the best practices for the industry, and would be applicable whichever CAM product you are using, such as Delcam’s PowerMILL and FeatureCAM software, HSMWorks add-in, Inventor HSM software, or Fusion 360 software. This session features PowerMill and FeatureCAM.
This class will teach you how to program using Autodesk, Inc.’s, FeatureCAM software. It will focus on using FeatureCAM software’s automation to help you program your parts faster, more efficiently, and more consistently. FeatureCAM is a feature-based CAM system, which means that it uses common industry terminology during the programming process to keep you from learning specialized terms just to program your parts. This session features FeatureCAM.
Feature-based computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) systems enable users to automate their manufacturing processes to minimize the learning curve for new users, as well as help even the newest user to produce reliable toolpaths quickly and efficiently. Learn how Delcam’s FeatureCAM can automatically select the tooling as well as feeds and speeds required, enabling you to standardize your manufacturing processes.
Autodesk CAM for Educators, Students, Classrooms, Student Clubs, Maker Spaces, Non Profits, Learn about Autodesk’s learning resources, and how you can take advantage of the free integrated CAD/CAM software.
