This class will cover the limits of Autodesk HSM software, especially regarding multitasking machines and 5-axis machining. With the use of Autodesk HSM, we can program these complicated machines really easily if we have some tricks and background. This background consists of machine kinematics, control, and the ways in which our CAM settings change the output of the code. After this class, attendees will be able to program mill-turn and multitasking machines, and they'll know what to look for when buying such a machine. Above all, attendees will learn that the limits of Autodesk HSM are much further away than people think. This is also a chance to meet that guy you may have seen on the Autodesk HSM Forums.
- Learn how to program a multitasking machine like Mori-Seiki NTX or Doosan SMX3100
- Understand what to look for in a multitasking machine and post processor
- Learn how to change the CAM setting to get the desired output
- Understand the actual limits of the software
Youngster amongst the Expert Elite members but have been called an old dog by some in the CAM business. Started at my brother’s shop a few years ago. As the “computer nerd” in the family I was the guy to help move from old hand wheels to CNC controls. Now we have a shop with 7 guys and some serious machines. I’m responsible for everything that happens on the shop floor, including all tools needed for the work at hand. Have been working with the CAM Development team before it was part of Autodesk. Together, Autodesk (CAM), the re-sellers and the users we are building a great product.
