Look behind the curtain of upcoming Inventor HSM and Fusion 360 CAM releases

When your priority is keeping CNC machines removing metal, creating high quality parts, and do so fast, you need great CAM software. The CAM tool will help take the design on 2D print or on the screen and generate code that in the end will make the machine run. When my task was to keep half a dozen CNC machines busy 24/7, I was always looking to be part of beta testing of upcoming CAM releases. This would give me chance to see what development was working before the annual software release.
Today we can do better than secret beta testing clubs. One thing that makes the Autodesk CAM development team stand out, is continued updates, willingness to listen, and helping users on the camforum.autodesk.com
To top that of here is a couple of videos on what is being worked on right now…

Fusion 360: Make it with CAM with Lars!

Fusion 360 CAD/CAM lives in the spotlight of Autodesk’s slogan “The future of making things”. But what if the “future” ambushes you while sipping your morning coffee, busy catching up on yesterday’s news?
This—design, engineer, fabrication—tool will bring you the future, today. Beginning with CAD that creates form, features and drawings, and in the end lets you manufacture products with built in 3D printing layouts and create nifty CNC toolpaths. This all happens while you can collaborate with anyone on any type of cloud connected device.

I had a chance the other day to be a guest on the Fusion 360 Live Classroom with James Herzing, Fusion 360 Community Manager, and I got to show the basics of 2.5D CAM inside Fusion 360.
