Autodesk Inventor HSM Now Commercially Available

Today Autodesk announced the commercial availability of Inventor HSM, a truly integrated CAM solution for Inventor users. Inventor HSM 2015 helps machinists, designers and engineers turn their Inventor designs into machined parts by generating best-in-class machining toolpaths, directly inside Inventor.

“In the manufacturing world, quality is critical,” said Carl White, senior director of manufacturing engineering at Autodesk. “Inventor HSM will help users manufacture high quality finished parts, while saving valuable time and resources.”

Inventor HSM 2015 includes a full license of Inventor 2015 software, delivering a complete CAD/CAM package with a truly integrated design-to-manufacturing experience. Originally announced in July, Inventor HSM includes the following features:

  • Flexible 2.5D, 3D, and 3+2 toolpath options and settings for the best possible surface finish
  • Simulation tools that help users verify the machining process before CNC programs are run on a machine
  • Highly customizable post-processors and a powerful CNC editor that enable users to tailor their programs to their CNC machine
