Inventor CAM is available only in the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection

The Product Design & Manufacturing Collection provides the tools you need for the design and manufacturing of your products. The collection includes:

  • Inventor
  • Inventor Nesting
  • Inventor Tolerance Analysis
  • And more

Inventor CAM features

  • Adaptive clearing

    Reduce roughing time by a factor of 4 or more compared to conventional roughing and increase tool life. (video: 3:43 min.)

  • 2.5- and 3-axis milling

    Create toolpaths with powerful technology, such as 3D adaptive clearing, and the industry’s most complete package of finishing toolpaths. (video: 1:49 min.)

  • 4- and 5-axis milling

    Simultaneous 4- and 5-axis features for machining complex models include tilt, multi-axis contour, and swarf. (video: 1:52 min.)

  • Turning and mill-turn

    Improve productivity with traditional turning, facing, grooving, and boring functions. Includes support for live tooling mill-turning. (video: 2:10 min.)

  • AnyCAD in Inventor

    Design changes in the source CAD system get automatically updated downstream in drawings and toolpaths.

  • Waterjet, plasma, and laser cutting

    Generate 2D profile cutting paths quickly with the ability to add all contours in the same plane, add tabs, and specify quality settings.

  • Probing

    Automatically avoid collisions between your part and tool holders during CNC calculations.
    Learn more

  • Tool holder avoidance

    Multiprocessor/multicore CPU support reduces toolpath calculation times, especially on large or complex designs.
    Learn more

  • Slope machining

    Control cutter engagement by using slope angles to minimize tool deflection and improve finish.
    Learn more

  • Stock and toolpath simulation

    See stock being removed, and check for shaft and clamp/fixture collisions.
    Learn more

  • CNC output edit

    Perform common text edits to NC program files.
    Learn more

  • Analysis tools

    Measure distances or dynamically view vital information, such as feed/speed and estimated machining time.

Small-batch custom products

Full-service manufacturer of small-batch custom products harnesses the flexibility of integrated CAD/CAM, and turns the customers’ 3D data, drawings into reality.


Creating customized race car components

Racing team uses Inventor CAM to create its own dragster components. Doing so is more flexible and less expensive than buying off-the-shelf components.


Medical implant manufacturing at scale

Medical implant maker uses Inventor CAM to create toolpaths for complex designs, enabling the company to bring medical implant manufacturing in-house.
