Autodesk will exhibit its range of CAM software built on the HSM CAM kernel, designed for generating efficient machining code and enabling the manufacture of high-quality finished parts while saving time and resources, the company says.

The company's Inventor HSM CAD/CAM software combines the capabilities of Inventor 3D software and HSM CAM technology into an integrated design-to-manufacturing process. Inventor users can take advantage of familiar workflows and tools when programming CNC toolpaths for 2.5D (2-1/2-axis), 3D and 3+2 machining projects.

Inventor HSM Express is a CAM software plug-in for all configurations of Inventor, supporting professional 2.5D milling and drilling applications.

HSMWorks, which integrates with SolidWorks 3D design software, provides advanced features for 2.5D, 3D, 3+2 and multi-axis milling, as well as 2D turning applications. Features include an API (application programming interface) that enables automation of toolpath generation and post processing, and provides a CAM system with access to additional computing power.

HSMXpress is a CAM add-on for SolidWorks, designed for professional 2.5D milling and drilling applications.

Fusion 360, the company's cloud-based 3D design software, has been updated to include 2.5D, 3D and 3+2 machining strategies, enabling the machining of complex parts with sculptured or organic shapes and surfaces.
