InventorCAM booth at Autodesk University
SolidCAM's CAM software, which is integrated both in SolidWorks and in Autodesk Inventor, has integrated well into the Autodesk University conference and training programme for architects, engineers, designers, industry and tech leaders and other professionals. As such, InventorCAM, SolidCAM's leading integrated CAM for Autodesk Inventor, has proved especially useful in helping those with an interest in getting to grips with CNC machine technology.
InventorCAM's CAM software features modules for all CNC applications, including the revolutionary patented iMachining program. The Autodesk Inventor-integrated software has full toolpath associativity to the Inventor model, automatically synchronising the toolpath to model changes.
The 2014 incarnation of InventorCAM is a Certified Partner Product for Autodesk Inventor and has more than 100 new enhancements across all its modules: iMachining 2D & 3D, 2.5D Milling, HSS, HSR/HSM, Sim 5X, Turning, Advanced Mill-Turn for multi-turret and multi-spindle machines, as well as a new module - Solid Probe.
SolidCAM exhibited InventorCAM 2014 on its booth at Autodesk University 2013 in Las Vegas last month (December 3rd-5th). Autodesk University underwent something of a transformation over 2013, making a special feature of the latest in manufacturing software from SolidCAM and associated CNC machine technology in a conference that has traditionally been focused on design for mechanical, architecture, civil engineering and computer graphic animation.
SolidCAM reported that huge screens on the InventorCAM booth displayed the latest advances in InventorCAM's CNC Machining technology, including its revolutionary iMachining and, coupled with the adjoining HAAS CNC machines, enabled hundreds of mechanical design-oriented attendees to see the design to manufacture process in action. There were even comments from attendees on how interesting and exciting CAM technology is now and how people would be more open to in-house CNC machining production. Professionals in other design areas also voiced their interest in CAM, as it was the first time Autodesk had prominently featured CAM and CNC machining.
CEO of Autodesk Carl Bass referenced CAM several times in his keynote address at the event and there were special breakout sessions focused on educating people on how they can turn their designs into reality using CNC machines.
COO of SolidCAM Inc of North America Shaun Mymudes commented: "Autodesk University 2013 was a successful show for us, with Autodesk promoting the subtractive CNC technology of CAM in addition to its traditional focus on 3D printing.
"The CAM pavilion was continuously active and people were eager to know more about InventorCAM, iMachining and CNC machining in general. Our ability to provide the full integrated CAM solution for Inventor, Inventor LT and AutoCAD, put us in a great position to really reach out to a new audience."
