This course will focus on instructing new users on how to use the Inventor CAM add-on to create milling toolpaths. You will learn the key skills and knowledge required to take a 3D model, set it up in the CAM environment, and assign the toolpaths needed to generate the computer numerical control (CNC) code required by milling machines. The demonstration in this class will focus on a simple design that requires 2D milling toolpaths. This will let us stay focused on the workflow and learn how to create the toolpaths. Specifically, we’ll generate the face, 2D adaptive, 2D pocket, 2D contour, and drill toolpaths for the demonstration model. To complete the course, you’ll also learn how to use the Simulation option to visualize the new toolpaths, and how to output the CNC code required to machine a model.
