Benefits of Machining Solutions
Create prototype products and automate machine toolpaths
Integrate CAD, CAM and CAE to boost productivity
Automate workflows from design to numeric code
Collaborate using cloud technology
With the use of prototype 3D modelling combined with manufacturing techniques inside Autodesk’s CAM software users will have a fully loaded CAD/CAM solution.
CAD/CAM solutions range from 2, 3, 4 and 5 axis machining with integrated design, simulation and collaboration tools.
Autodesk provides automated CAM software with CNC programming. Program faster with automatic recognition tools based around the scan and identification of features. Intelligent and consist of programming with collision avoidance of regions and work holdings.
Supporting 2, 3, 4 and 5 axis machining – milling, turning, mill-turn, swiss lathe and wire EDM.
Complex machining, programming, simulation and verification are tasks performed by Autodesk’s expert high speed 5 axis machining software.
Rapid calculation of toolpaths, efficient roughing and comprehensive finishing are only some of the tasks that can be performed using Autodesk’s expert CNC programming software. Fewer setups, more aggressive feeds and speeds, improved machine motion and shorter cycle times give Autodesk’s expected solution a very high rating.
When utilising Autodesk’s Advanced Manufacturing applications, you will need to use a post-processor to digest your Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) operations to a Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machine. To do this, you must have Numerical Control (NC) Code, formatted in a specific way depending on your machine and its controller, these are some of the most popular machine controllers: Fanuc, Siemens, Heidenhain, Haas, Mitsubishi and Fagor.
