Once you have successfully created and verified your toolpaths, you are ready to post process your files. This step is the final step and provides the output that is required by your CNC machine in order to machine the model.
As a reminder, this series is based on my AU class and has been broken into four learning objectives (watch intro video), which conveniently align with the four key skills that a new user will need to learn: defining your setup, adding toolpaths, checking your toolpaths with simulations, and generating the CNC code to manufacture your model.
The final two videos (along with the previous links) are now available below and will teach you how to post process your Inventor CAM data.
- Create the first setup for the operation in the Inventor CAM environment.
- Instructional Discussion
- Software Demonstration
This series is approximately 60 minutes’ worth of content, whereas the ASCENT guide on which it is based is approximately 2 days of content. If you are interested in more in-depth instructional content, datasets, and exercises that allow you to try all my demonstration models, I recommend checking out our Autodesk Inventor CAM 2021: Milling Fundamentals learning guide.
