CAM integrated in CAD:
hyperMILL® for Autodesk® Inventor®
The CAD software Autodesk® Inventor® and hyperMILL® for Autodesk® Inventor® – the CAM program as a powerful CAD integration – are two perfect team players when it comes to significantly speeding up design and manufacturing processes.
Autodesk is one of the world’s leading software providers for 3D design, construction, planning and entertainment. Autodesk® Inventor® is one of the most widely used CAD applications for drafting, visualising and simulating products at the beginning of the manufacturing process.
hyperMILL® for Autodesk® Inventor® CAM software
hyperMILL® for Autodesk® Inventor® provides users of the 3D CAD software with a powerful CAM program that allows them to program independently of machine and controller in manufacturing. The CAM user continues to work within their familiar CAD environment. This reduces the amount of training that is required and helps to prevent operator errors. Autodesk has certified hyperMILL® for Inventor®, which means that the CAM software fulfills the highest requirements regarding integration, reliability and user-friendliness.
- Direct integration of hyperMILL® in Inventor®, so-called one-window integration The user does not need to leave Autodesk® Inventor® for CAM programming
- One database: a single file for CAD and CAM data
- Trusted user interface with familiar look and feel: easy to learn and fast access to CAD functionalities
- Powerful CAM strategies for every requirement
- The world’s leading 5-axis technology
- Certified partner

Autodesk® has certified the hyperMILL® CAM solution for use with Autodesk Inventor 2018. hyperMILL® for Autodesk® Inventor® fulfils the certification criteria of Autodesk and therefore guarantees the highest level of quality, interoperability and compatibility. Strict guidelines ensure that a seamless exchange of data takes place between Autodesk® Inventor® and hyperMILL®.
Thanks to the CAD integration, the CAM product takes on the ‘look and feel’ of the CAD interface. The full-scale integration provides all 2.5D, 3D, HSC/HPC and 5-axis milling as well as turning strategies within this environment. The user does not need to leave their familiar environment. hyperMILL® can be conveniently accessed via a tab. The user can switch freely between the CAD and CAM systems at all times.
Continuous processes with standardised data models guarantee security and transparency throughout the entire manufacturing process, from design and programming right through to the simulation stage. This prevents data import problems as well as read/write errors.
The feature technology provided by hyperMILL® allows the geometry information available in the CAD system to be used for CAM programming. For example, the automatic feature recognition identifies holes and pockets on solids and face models. Furthermore, machining strategies and tools can be linked with features in technology macros and saved in a technology database.
From 2.5D, 3D, HSC/HPC and 5-axis milling through to mill turning, the hyperMILL® CAM software has an extensive range of CAM strategies at its disposal.
