Inventor Nesting and CAM Workflow

June 23 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Catalyst Connection has partnered with MESA, Inc. to bring you Autodesk training.

Description: The Product Design and Manufacturing Collection offers two great add-ins that emphasize the Manufacturing portion of the collection.  With Inventor Nesting and Inventor CAM, users have the ability to create nests of parts, which can be exported to a DXF file or a 3D model for use in Inventor CAM.  This class will walk students through the process of going from Assembly to Nest to CAM.

What you will learn:

  • Requirements for parts to be included in a nest
  • Adding source files to a nesting study
  • Exporting nests as DXFs and 3D models
  • Creating a CAM Setup and tool paths

Course Objective: The primary objective of this course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of how to create nests and create toolpaths for generated nests.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Properly setup parts to be nested
  • Exclude components from being nested
  • Create a Nesting Study
  • Review Nesting statistics
  • Export nest sheets as a DXF and a 3D model
  • Create a CAM setup for a nest
  • Create the toolpaths for a laser or plasma cutter, a water jet, or routing table
  • Generate an NC file for a toolpath

Course Outline:

  • Setting up parts to be nested
  • Excluding components from being nested
  • Creating a Nesting Study
  • Reviewing Nesting statistics
  • Exporting nest sheets as a DXF and a 3D model
  • Creating a CAM setup for a nest
  • Creating the toolpaths for a laser or plasma cutter, a water jet, or routing table
  • Generating an NC file for a toolpath

Prerequisites: No previous CAD experience is necessary. However, before taking this course, the student should have a working knowledge of the following:

  • Drafting, design, or mechanical engineering principles.
  • Working understanding of Windows.

Duration: 1/2 Day
