  • 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.

Automated true-shape nesting

Generate multiple sheet nests to reduce raw material waste. Optimize the use of materials in flat cutting operations.

Smooth workflows for creating cutting paths

Create 3D models of a nest and generate cutting paths with Inventor CAM, or export DXF files. Use DXF files in AutoCAD and other toolpath-making software.

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.

Overview

The Autodesk AEC Industry Collection is a compilation of software titles for the architecture, engineering, construction and infrastructure industries which give the ability to 3D model, design, visualise, animate, coordinate, simulate, document and draft designs in 2D.

Create high-quality, detailed designs for building and infrastructure projects.

Improve predictability in the field by coordinating and simulating projects and schedules.

The Autodesk AEC Industry Collection is a compilation of software titles for the architecture, engineering, construction and insfrastructure industries which give the ability to 3D model, design, visualise, animate, coordinate, simulate, document and draft designs in 2D.

  • Create high-quality, detailed designs for building and infrastructure projects.
  • Optimise designs with analysis, generative design, visualisation and simulation tools.
  • Improve predictability in the field by coordinating and simulating projects and schedules.

Architectural BIM Workflows

Combine Revit and Insight to improve environmental performance to guide you towards better outcomes using robust analytical tools.
Model in Revit and visualise analysis in Insight such as indicators, benchmark, ranges and specifications on factors such as infiltration, operating schedule, building orientation, lighting efficiency, HVAC, plug load efficiency, payback limit, surface coverage, panel efficiency and effect on construction materials.
Once you have viewed results, you can make design changes in Revit to optimise the building performance using comparison scenarios and viewing the results through the analytical model and produce a calculation summary report to validate design choices.
 
 

Infrastructure BIM Workflows

Combine Revit, Civil 3D and Infraworks for bridge analysis and design. Use Civil 3D road geometry to create the initial bridge and develops the design further in Infraworks using parametric rules to change the characteristics of the bridge by individually changing parameters or automate by connecting parameters to a spreadsheet to layout the bridge. Run integrated analysis and design tools to provide feedback during the optioneering phase.
 
Any changes in Civil 3D can be updated in Infraworks thereby providing connected design tools. The bridge structure can be publish to Revit and design work can continue concurrently using 3D structural design tools and 2D documentation.

Generative Design

Create generative design studies to quickly view alternate designs

Structral Design and Analysis Workflows

Combine Revit, Advance Steel and Robot to design, engineer and fabricate structural projects.

3D Scanning BIM Workflows

Pre-process point cloud data for Revit and import 3D scans and work in a hybrid reality capture BIM environment.

Design Automation Workflows

Automate routine tasks that normally take hours into minutes by running Dynamo scripts with applications such as Revit, Civil 3D, FormIT and Advance Steel .

MEP Fabrication Workflows

Connect Revit and CADmep to reduce duplication in designs allowing fabricators to create production designs and documentaion..
