Inventor HSM Express - Beta Invitation - Free CAM Solution for Inventor Users

This just came in from the Product Manager of CAM for Autodesk, Anthony Graves.

Next week the Autodesk CAM Team will launch the official Public Beta of Inventor HSM Express, a free 2-1/2 Axis CAM solution for Inventor users.

Powered by HSMWorks CAM technology, Inventor HSM Express has all the capabilities of HSMXpress – the Free CAM Solution for SolidWorks and is seamlessly integrated inside the design environment of Autodesk Inventor. This integration allows Inventor users to take advantage of workflow and tools they are used to when programming CNC toolpaths for their 2.5D machining projects.

If you are an experienced Inventor user we could really use your help. Our goal is to have a CAM solution so tightly integrated with Inventor that you don’t perceive any difference when switching between the modeling environment and the CAM environment. Your feedback is crucial in helping us achieve this goal. And, for those of you with CNC programming experience, we would love to hear your first impressions in working with our new CAM tools.

For those of you who would like to participate in our Beta but don’t have Inventor you may download a 30-day trial here:
