- Version HSM - Integrated CAM Software


Inventor HSM and HSMWorks CAM software simplify the machining workflow with CAD-embedded 2.5-axis to 5-axis milling, turning, and mill-turn capabilities. Available only as part of the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.

  • Adaptive Clearing

    Reduce roughing time by a factor of 4 or more compared to conventional roughing, and increase tool life. (video: 3:46 min.)

  • CAD/CAM integration

    Use the familiar tools and user interface in Inventor or SOLIDWORKS software. (video: 1:27 min.)

  • AnyCAD in Inventor

    Design changes in the source CAD system get automatically updated downstream in drawings and toolpaths. (video: 57 sec.)

  • Fast toolpath calculation time

    Multiprocessor/multicore CPU support reduces toolpath calculation times, especially on large or complex designs. (video: 1:03 min.)

  • 2.5-axis machining

    Strategies for 2D machining on flat planes. Included in the free express and regular versions of HSMWorks and Inventor HSM. (video: 1:59 min.)

  • 3-axis milling and 3+2 positioning

    Choose from several 3-axis styles, or select a work plane, and perform 3+2 axis positioning with the same CAM strategies. (video: 2:05 min.)

  • Multiaxis operations

    Simultaneous 4- and 5-axis features for machining complex models include multiaxis contouring and 3D toolpath tilting. (video: 2:10 min.)

  • Turning and mill-turn

    Improve productivity with traditional turning, facing, grooving, and boring functions. Includes support for live tooling mill-turning. (video: 2:24 min.)

  • Waterjet, plasma, and laser cutting

    Generate 2D profile cutting paths quickly with the ability to add all contours in the same plane, add tabs, and specify quality settings. (video: 1 min.)

  • Probing

    Automatically avoid collisions between your part and tool holders during CNC calculations. (video: 1:17 min.)

  • Tool holder avoidance

    Include the tool holder in cutter path calculations to prevent collisions, with options to pull away, trim, detect tool length, or abort if interference occurs. (video: 1:58 min.)

  • Engraving shapes and text

    Carve shapes or text into parts, using a chamfer tool. (video: 44 sec.)

  • Slope machining

    Control cutter engagement by using slope angles to minimize tool deflection and improve finish.

  • Stock and toolpath simulation

    See stock being removed, and check for shaft and clamp/fixture collisions.

  • CNC output edit

    Perform common text edits to NC program files.

  • Analysis tools

    Measure distances or dynamically view vital information, such as feed/speed and estimated machining time.
