Preparing your designs for manufacture isn't just about knocking out a 2D drawing and hitting print. There's a ton of metadata which can be created and capitalized on to improve the flow of information and the components themselves through the manufacturing process. These days, automated manufacturing with computer numerical control (CNC) is commonplace; therefore, it is necessary to have an efficient process for creating CNC cut files or models. In this class, we cover several ways to prepare and export data to CAM software ready for CNC machining. Which one is best for your company or process? Exporting that manufacturing data from Inventor® software is only part of the process. Learn how you can deliver that information to those within manufacturing and procurement. The class also features iPropWiz V6, an amazing Inventor add-in that not only supercharges iProperties, but also makes it easier to create CNC cut files.
- Use iPropWiz to supercharge your component properties and manufacturing data
- List the options for creating 2D CNC cut files
- List the options for creating 3D CNC cut files
- Deliver manufacturing information and CAM information to those who need it
Scott Moyse is a Manufacturing, CAM & Data Management Technical Specialist for CADPRO Systems in New Zealand. He previously worked at SMI for over 9 years after moving from the UK while studying Motorsport Engineering. He started out as design support & quickly moved into programming their new CNC machine. Over the next 4 years he worked closely with both manufacturing & design to create & implement automated processes. This provided him with an invaluable insight into both departments operations. In 2008 he moved back into design full-time, resulting in him taking the Design Manager position in 2009. Since then he's implemented & managed Autodesk Vault Professional, improving communication, work allocation, organization & increased control over the design review process. Over the years he has been deeply involved in process formation, implementation & development in an ever changing environment. He also regularly contributes on designandmotion.net
Gavin is currently employed by NZ's largest Autodesk reseller in a split role between technical support/consulting and software development, usually in the form of customisation for Autodesk Products. His focus is primarily the Autodesk HSM products, and Vault. Before becoming a Technical Consultant, he spent about 10 years using Inventor, Vault and various CAM packages as a mechanical designer. Gavin has worked in a variety of industries including Aerospace, Defense, Consumer Products, and materials handling equipment for everything from logging/mining to food. In these areas he has designed machinery, equipment and products involving a huge variety of materials and manufacturing processes. Gavin places utmost emphasis on manufacturability in the design work he does, as a result of having always worked very closely with the manufacturing environment. This has taught him to adapt and calibrate his digital-prototyping tools to give real-world results.
