Navigating CAD Translation Issues for CNC CAM Programming

Presented by Modern Machine Shop & Autodesk

To remain competitive, CNC job shops need to program and machine parts as quickly as possible. Changes in the CAD model or problems with importing data can slow this process down. Costs can increase when proprietary formats require expensive translators.

Managing multiple CAD formats and model changes in a fast moving product environment requires an integrated CAD CAM solution that can efficiently manage data from dissimilar CAD systems, yet remain easy to use.

Date and Time
Thu, Apr 21, 2016 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT


  • How to work with proprietary CAD formats without interrupting your programming process
  • How to automatically deal with CAD model changes from your customer
  • How to use an integrated CAD/CAM solution for necessary data manipulation, such as the creation of run-off data
  • How to go from import to CNC code in minutes, not hours

More Details

HSMWorks(SolidWorks) and Inventor HSM(Inventor) provide truly integrated design-to-manufacturing solutions for manufacturers and Job Shops using SOLIDWORKS or Inventor. This enables shops to get up to speed and become productive within minutes, by using familiar tools and workflows.
In addition to standard machining strategies for 2.5D, 3D and 3+2, 5-axis milling and 2-axis turning applications, HSM offers advanced toolpath strategies for high-efficiency machining, integrated simulation and verification tools, and post-processor system to help achieve higher productivity, increased profits and shorter time-to-market.
    Event Focus:
  • Learn the benefits of programming offline while your machine is busy making chips
  • See how easy it is to take a solid model and generate a program in HSM
  • Take a Hands-on Test Drive to see how simple, yet powerful HSM is to use
    Key take-aways for attendees include:
  • Integrated CAD/CAM through full associativity to the solid model
  • Realize a 50% reduction in Engineering Change times
  • Adaptive clearing (high efficiency machining) included at no additional charge
  • Standard Post Processors Free/ Custom Posts, additional charges apply
  • Free 2 1/2 axis software for all customers
  • Free CNC handbook written on Haas CNC Controller
  • T shirt give aways, lunch, networking with local manufactures and Job Shops
