InventorCAM 5-Axis Simultaneous Milling User Guide

Simultaneous 5-Axis machining is one of the most powerful modules of InventorCAM. It has the most advanced control over all the aspects of tool path and collision checking. InventorCAM utilizes all the advantages of Simultaneous 5-Axis machining and together with wide variety of Simultaneous 5-Axis cutting strategies, collision control, and machine simulation provides a solid base for your 5-Axis solution.

The 5-Axis module provides the following advantages:
• Wide variety of Simultaneous 5-Axis cutting strategies gets you up and cutting instantly
• Specific applications solutions for SWARF, Multi-Blade, Port, Contour 5-Axis, Multiaxis drilling, and Converting from HSM to Sim 5-Axis
• Flowline cutting produces a tool path that follows the natural shape of the component; particularly useful with blade type components
• Advanced tool tilting control and direct control on side tilting and lead/lag angles

• Multi-surface finish machining keeps the tool normal to the surface (or with specified lead and lag) to provide full control and smooth surface finish
• Multi-pass roughing techniques using multiple cut increments in the Z or XY planes with the option to trim to boundary
• Automatic gouge avoidance strategies that check each part of the tool and the holder
• Realistic full 3D machine simulation with comprehensive collision and axis limits checking

InventorCAM 5-Axis machining supports all 5-Axis machine tools including Table/Table, Table/Head and Head/Head gantry machines and the latest Mill/Turn machining centers.

Multiblade Machining
The Multiblade Machining operation easily handles impellers and bladed disks, with multiple strategies to efficiently rough and
finish each part of these complex shapes.
All the blade surfaces are machined in a single operation. Various cutting strategies are supplied for roughing and finishing of the impeller parts. Multibladed parts are used in many industries.
This operation is specifically designed to generate the necessary tool paths for the different multiblade configurations.

Port Machining
The Port Machining operation is an easy to use method for machining ports with tapered lollipop tool, and has collision checks for the entire tool (shank, arbor, and holder). You can choose to cut the top only, the bottom only, and specify how much stock to leave on the entire port. It uses 3-Axis machining as far into the port as possible, and then switches to 5-Axis motion. Smooth transitions are created where the tool paths meet at the middle of the port. It provides both roughing and finishing tool paths to make ports from castings or billet.

Contour 5-Axis Machining
The Contour 5-Axis Machining operation tilts the tool along a chained 3D profile drive curve, while aligning the tool axis according to the defined tilt lines, making it ideal for generating 5-Axis tool path for deburring and trimming.

Swarf Machining
The SWARF Machining operation allows the side of the tool to be tilted over to machine the side wall at the correct angle. SWARF cutting uses the whole cutting length of the tool, resulting in better surface quality and shorter machining time.

Multiaxis Drilling
The Multiaxis Drilling operation uses InventorCAM’s automatic hole recognition and then performs drilling, tapping or boring cycles, at any hole direction easily and quickly. All the advanced linking, tilting and collision avoidance strategies available in other sim 5-Axis operations are also available in this operation, to provide full control of the generated Sim 5-Axis drilling tool path.

Converting HSM to Sim 5-Axis Milling operation converts HSM 3D tool paths to full 5-Axis machining, collision-protected tool paths. This maintains optimum contact point between the tool and the part and enables the use of shorter tools, for more stability and rigidity.

Multiaxis Roughing
InventorCAM provides you with the Multiaxis Roughing operation. This operation creates a multiaxis tool path used to rough out pocket shaped geometries. You can specify the inputs for floor, wall and ceiling surfaces which are used by InventorCAM to create the roughing tool path.

Rotary Machining
InventorCAM provides you with the Rotary Machining operation. This operation is designed to generate rotary tool path to mill parts on a 4-axis machine. It can be used to mill cylindrical parts like bottle molds and core, electrodes, and wood work. The tool paths are directly calculated on 3D geometry and not wrapped around.
