  • 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.

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.

Connect your workflows, teams, and data.

Overview

Build a more connected structure. The Autodesk Construction Cloud  which connects workflows, teams, and data to help you create better.

  • Reduce risk, raise efficiency, and complete projects on schedule and under budget.
  • Improve decision-making speed and accuracy, link your teams, and forecast project outcomes.
  • Go from design to construction all within one platform.
  • Increase the company’s predictability and profitability while driving innovation.

Connect workflows, teams and data at every stage of construction

Autodesk Construction Cloud is an end to end construction solution that bring every project team together from design to turnover on a single construction software solution. Connect workflows and collaborate securely from a single source of truth.

 

 

Connect Construction Workflows

Autodesk Construction Cloud is best-in-class software built for simplicity and power – uniting office, and field teams from design through planning, construction, and operations.

Autodesk Construction Cloud - Design Plan Build Operate

Design

Architects, engineers and project teams can collaborate on coordinated, shared designs – regardless of location, role in the project, or stage of the project. Simplify design development and reduce information loss at handover for better design collaboration. And truly connect design and construction for a more collaborative, more transparent partnership between designers and builders.

Autodesk Construction Cloud helps turn designs from a vision and set of documentation to a living asset that serves the needs of the building throughout its lifecycle.

Autodesk Construction Cloud - Design Plan Build Operate

Plan

Set your projects up for success before you break ground. Improve design quality and constructibility, create accurate takeoffs, and find the right builders for every project. Access the industry’s largest network of builders and vendor qualification management to mitigate risk for every project. Drive successful outcomes with cloud-based technology that automates manual tasks and streamlines collaboration between every project stakeholder.

With Autodesk Construction Cloud solutions, preconstruction teams can execute design intent, bid competitively, mitigate financial risks, and remain profitable by streamlining coordination, model conditioning, quantification, bid management, and qualification.

Autodesk Construction Cloud - Design Plan Build Operate

Build

Construction often operates in a fragmented way, with disconnection between project phases leading to uncertainty throughout the project and an inability to control project outcomes. Connecting issues, RFIs and progress between the office and field, and analyzing that data with machine learning can impact cost, schedule, quality and safety on every job.

Autodesk Construction Cloud helps overcome these barriers by removing siloes, supporting interoperability between work phases and turning project data into actionable intelligence.

Autodesk Construction Cloud - Design Plan Build Operate

Operate

Connect BIM asset data created during design and construction to building operations for model viewing, and access to maintenance checklists, scheduling, and history. With all project teams working in a common data platform, owners gain visibility into project status, changes and problems.

With Autodesk Construction Cloud, improved visibility means more predictable project outcomes and more profitable projects.
