  • Chip breaking – Chip breaking with pecking and partial retracts between pecks.
  • Deep drilling – Deep drilling with pecking and full retract between pecks.
  • Guided deep drilling – gun drilling – Deep drilling that produces a very round hole with a precision diameter. Very useful for deep, straight holes in a variety of materials.
  • Tapping – Tapping (G84/G74). Synchronous spindle speed and feed.
  • Tapping with chip breaking – Tapping with chip breaking.
  • Break through – Allows for reduced feed and speed before breaking through a hole.
  • Reaming – Reaming (G85 style) with feed out.
  • Boring – Boring with dwell at bottom and feed out.
  • Stop boring – Boring (G86 style) with spindle stop at the bottom and rapid out.
  • Fine boring – Fine boring with shift away from the hole side.
  • Back-boring – Boring from the back.
  • Circular pocket milling – Circular pocket milling.
  • Bore milling – Bore milling.
  • Thread milling – Thread milling.
  • Probe – Used to measure a feature on the part with a probe tool, or use macros from the machine to define the WCS. Needs special handling in the post processors depending on the machine.
Coolant

Select the type of coolant used with the machine tool. Not all types will work with all machine postprocessors.

Feed & Speed

Spindle and Feedrate cutting parameters.

  • Spindle Speed – The rotational speed of the spindle expressed in Rotations Per Minute (RPM)
  • Surface Speed – The speed which the material moves past the cutting edge of the tool (SFM or m/min)
  • Plunge Feedrate – The drilling feedrate when plunging into stock
  • Feed per Revolution – The plunge feedrate expressed as the feed per revolution
  • Retract Feedrate – Feed used when retracting, but not using rapid moves (G0)

Autodesk Inventor Nesting

Inventor Nesting

Inventor® Nesting software which is integrated within Inventor Professional turns sheet metal parts into nesting tables.

By optimising the nest table, companies reduce raw material costs and can compare nesting studies to better understand cost and choose the right nesting study. 

  • Have multiple material and packaging options by generating multiple sheet nests in a single study 

  • Maximise job profitability by comparing costs and the efficiency associated with nesting studies variations.

  • Ensure consistent grain direction on all parts to prevent cracking in subsequent bending operations by specifying allowable orientations.

Product Design & Manufacturing Collection Tolerance Analysis

product design and manufacturing collection 600 Moving at the Speed of Business

Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection Tolerance Analysis

Inventor Tolerance Analysis: CAD-embedded tolerance stackup analysis software. Available only in the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.

Overview

Inventor® Tolerance Analysis software is designed to help Inventor users make more informed decisions while specifying manufacturing tolerances.

This allows users to:

  • Accurately calculate the cumulative effects of geometric dimensions and tolerances for all models included in the stackup loop

  • Verify manufacturing tolerances for consistent fit and maximum part interchangeability during early design stages

  • Communicate analysis results and cost-control efforts to manufacturing and quality engineers

Why use Inventor Tolerance Analysis?

Save on excessive machining costs

Save time and money by avoiding high-precision tolerances that add unnecessary costs and effort to your machining workflow.

Confirm that your components will fit together

Verify the fit of the components in your assemblies using tools that are fully integrated in Inventor.

Collaborate better with automated reports

Communicate analysis results and cost-control efforts to manufacturing and quality engineers.

Optimize assembly fit with tolerance stackup analysis

Reduce tolerance issues during manufacturing by running an analysis of the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) in a 3D model.

Product Design Manufacturing Collection tolerance analysis stack up Moving at the Speed of Business

Generate advanced statistical results

Calculate the worst-case, RSS, and statistical results of the analysis. Report metrics for statistical results such as Cpk, Σ (Sigma), DPMO, or % Yield.

PDM Collection Overview

The Autodesk PDM Industry Collection is a compilation of software titles for the manufacturing industry which gives the ability to 3D model, design, automate, visualise, animate, simulate, document and draft designs in 2D.

  • Create high-tolerance, fabrication level detailed designs for electromechanical products and fabricated structures.

  • Optimise designs with analysis, generative design, visualisation and simulation tools.

  • End to end CAD/CAM digital prototyping solution.

Integrated CAD/CAM and Nesting

The Product Design & Manufacturing Collection comes with Inventor CAM and Inventor Nesting, being one of the few, if only product set in the market with the exceptional 3D CAD modelling and detailing features of Inventor with integrated 2.5 to 5 axis CAM and Nesting..

Inventor and AutoCAD Workflows

Use the right tool for the right job. Reference AutoCAD 2D CAD data into Inventor designs and drawings and detail Inventor models in AutoCAD.

Inventor and Fusion Workflows

Use Fusion 360 generative design studies to explore design alternatives and optimise product preformance or cost.

Inventor and Revit Workflows

Reference Revit projects and use Inventor BIM interoperability tools to publish BIM data to Revit and other sources.

Included Software

The most comprehensive selection of cutting-edge BIM and CAD design, visualisation and analysis software and cloud tools comes within the AEC Collection.

Inventor Professional

Tools for parts and assembly modelling, automation, sheet metal, weldments, electrical, tube & pipe, bills of materials and 2D detailing.
