The Autodesk CAM team has released the first update to Inventor CAM 2020, is a powerful CAM software application designed to improve productivity and deliver seamless workflows in manufacturing environments so design teams can easily move components from the design stage through to CNC manufacture. Milling Toolpaths: - Fixed an issue where 3D Adaptive Clearing with rest machining can fail with complex remaining stock. - Fixed several issues in which the toolpath computations for Adaptive Clearing could fail on Mac. - Improved Adaptive for tighter model contours; it now finds a starting point on the stock boundary. - Improved start entries for Adaptive Clearing toolpaths so that the toolpath starts in corners/endpoints rather than in the middle of a stock line. - Fixed an issue where calculating a 2D Adaptive toolpath with rest machining from a face selection could result in a large area being machined. - Fixed an issue in Adaptive where using a ballnose cutter as a reference tool was giving the wrong toolpath. - Removed machine orientation information from the Adaptive toolpath geometry tab. - Fixed a crash that could occur in some cases after deleting the contour selection associated with a flat pattern. - Fixed an issue where preserve order was not respected in 2D Profile toolpaths. (#12127) - Fixed an issue that could occur when creating bore, circular and threading toolpaths around cylindrical bosses. - Fixed a problem in Contour toolpaths where ramps might not be connected to their cutting moves, resulting in an unexpected lift and plunge to cover the gap. - Fixed an issue that introduced unnecessary retracts in Ramp operations. - Fixed an issue which caused irregular cutting passes for Scallop toolpaths. - Fixed an issue where a Constant Scallop toolpath might not calculate when up/down milling and 'other-way' linking was enabled. Turning Toolpaths: - Fixed an issue where an angled turning tool was incorrectly previewed in the tool library. - Fixed a problem in turning profile roughing operations with turning mode set to face profiling where the toolpath was not regenerated after the direction parameter in the operation was changed. - Added an option for a turn parting operation to keep the parting tool down at the final toolpath point X coordinate or retract it to the clearance X coordinate. - Fixed an issue for turning face and chamfer operations with a turning or grooving tool. For certain combinations of the spindle direction and handedness of the holder, the Safe Z coordinate was based upon the wrong side of the insert. - Fixed an issue where a grooving operation could fail if the back and front Z limits coincided with the extents of the groove geometry. - Fixed a memory leak for some turning grooving jobs. Tool Library: - Fixed turning tool preview in the tool library when the spindle rotation was changed. - Fixed a problem with the visualization of a round shank external grooving tool in simulation. User Interface: - Fixed a problem in which an error message about "invalid machine configuration" was incorrectly displayed. - Fixed a problem where retracting z levels were machine areas that had already been cleared in lower levels. - Fixed a problem in which stock properties defaulted to selection of faces, and required selecting some face and clearing it before you could select the actual stock. - Fixed a crash that could occur when using drag-and-drop to import a tool library from Windows Explorer into the tool library window. - Fixed a crash that could occur during simulation if a toolpath removed nearly all of the stock. - Fixed a problem in certain operation dialogs that caused incorrect display of group parameters if the group was re-displayed due to a change to another parameter. - Fixed a problem that occurred when creating operations from a template containing a Manual NC operation. No tool will be assigned to the Manual NC. Post Processor: - Fixed an issue in which NC code was not correctly saved to the specified output file. - Fixed an issue in which the output directory could not be renamed or deleted after posting. - Functionality has been restored to the alert, promptKey, and promptKey2 API calls. These now work as before, but are supported only on Windows. - Fixed a regression where tool.getExtent() could return an empty bounding box, causing the setup sheet to incorrectly scale the tool image. - Added a mechanism to define which rotary axes support TCP in the post processor. This simplifies the code needed to disable TCP for a single axis. - Added new global function 'isNewWorkPlane(section)' which returns true if the passed section requires new workplane calls. This simplifies the 'newWorkPlane' checks that are typically done inside of post processors - Added global variables 'minimumProgramNumber' and 'maximumProgramNumber' to post processor. - Post properties that you set when using a post processor are now saved to a file. This allows using the post processor on other computers with confidence that the previously used properties will continue to be applied. - Added the onManualNC function that will handle all Manual NC commands, and the expandManualNC function that handles all Manual NC commands using the historical method. - Fixed the behavior of mapToWCS, so that it can be changed multiple times in the post. - Added cancelRotation and cancelTranslation methods. NC Editor: - Updated HSMEdit to fix an issue in which the display of text was corrupted. - Updated HSMEdit to correct a problem with the backDescriptionting function. Licensing: - Fixed a problem that could occur when activating Inventor CAM with an HSM Ultimate network license. - Fixed an issue in which administrator privileges were required when activating a license. Autodesk Inventor CAM (formerly Inventor HSM) - Integrated Autodesk Inventor CAM software - For those that aren't familiar with Computer Aided Manufacturing it is an approach that makes use of computer software to control machine tools and related machinery in the manufacturing of components.
Prior to CAM software, component machining was achieved via numerical control (NC) programming. This could be a very lengthy process and in modern design workflows where time to market is critical, traditional NC programming was often a bottleneck to early product launch. The subsequent wider adoption of 3D CAD software such as Autodesk Inventor opened up a new realm of possibilities for CAM software and machining companies resulting in the growth of more intelligent CAM Software designed to bridge the gap between design and production.
Autodesk helps people imagine, design and create a better world. Everyone-from design professionals, engineers and architects to digital artists, students and hobbyists-uses Autodesk software to unlock their creativity and solve important challenges.
