Autodesk has always been in the forefront in promoting its 3rd party vendors through Partner Products and ADN (Autodesk Developer Network)
Inventor has many such 3rd party vendors who support Inventor users in the field of CAD/CAM/CAE/CFD and PLM.
This post features the Inventor CAM a tool dedicated to Inventor CAM users.
InventorCAM provides seamless single-window integration and full associativity with the Inventor design model.
With the single-window integration of InventorCAM in Autodesk Inventor, all machining operations can be defined, calculated and verified without leaving the parametric Inventor environment. All 2D and 3D geometries used for machining are fully associative to the Inventor design model. If you do any changes to your Inventor model, all your CAM operations will be automatically updated.
The full associativity with the Inventor design reduces errors when the model changes and facilitates the process when updates are received for models already machined. The hallmarks of InventorCAM are its ease-of-use combined with its powerful CAM functionality and customized post-processors that generate ready-to-go CNC-code.
InventorCAM is used in the mechanical manufacturing, electronics, consumer products, medical, machine design, automotive and aerospace industries, in mold, tool and die and rapid prototyping shops.
You never have to leave the Inventor window
