Course Duration: Defined by customer requirements

Course Outline:


Our Mentorship consultancy is geared to very customer centric requirements so is extremely flexible giving you the option to guide the outcome of your session(s) or even use your own models as the basis of the consultancy.

This could range from guiding a user who has perfect knowledge of design codes and has completed only basic training but wants to get a better understanding of best practices and projects workflows using Robot Structural Analysis software. Through to mentorship for more advanced users who perhaps have a particular project such as office building or even football stadium and are experiencing some issues for example during meshing, nonlinear analysis etc. that need to be solved for the best outcome/result.

Mentorship Consultancy using client models or projects may require additional analytical work with customer’s models to be sure that all end users requirements can be fulfilled.

hsm 2020 badge 256px optGraitec's professional Inventor HSM training is geared to give users the best possible start when first using Autodesk Inventor HSM. HSM is a powerful CAM software application designed to improve productivity and deliver seamless workflows in manufacturing environments so design teams can easily move components from the design stage through to CNC manufacture.

The courses will help users move from 2D/2.5D milling through to 3D milling with multi-axis simultaneous machining into its milling and mill/turn environment using the same intuitive approach to toolpath programming found in the 2D/3D machining strategies.

Inventor HSM Courses Available

Introduction to Autodesk Inventor HSM 2D / 2.5D milling Duration: 1 Day
Introduction to Autodesk Inventor HSM 2D / 2.5D milling, 3D milling, Multi-axis milling and Turning Duration: 2 Days

Designed for: These courses cover the essentials of Autodesk Inventor HSM.

Prerequisites: It is recommended that you have an understanding of the Autodesk Inventor software and have been on Autodesk Inventor Essentials training.

Inventor HSM Course Objectives

  • Understand the fundamental concepts, workflows and benefits of using Inventor HSM.
  • Locate and navigate the Inventor HSM user interface and browser environments.
  • Understand the 2D / 2.5D, 3D, Multi-axis Milling and Turning commands.
  • Understand the machining simulation and post process generation.

After completing this course the user will be able to quickly and efficiently program their parts using a variety of strategies in Inventor HSM.

Course Outline

2D / 2.5D
Creating a Setup, Facing, Contouring, Adaptive Clearing, Pocket Machining, Counterboring, Countersinking, Drilling, Tapping, Engraving, Chamfering, Stock Simulation and Post Processing.

3D / 3 + 2
Creating a setup, Facing, outside contouring 2D, roughing using adaptive clearing, Adaptive clearing rest machining, Horizontal finishing, Contour finishing, Parallel finishing, Radii machining, Scallop machining, Pencil milling, Simulation and Post processing.

Swarf milling is a multi-axis strategy for machining with the side of the tool. This strategy supports both machining from contours only and from surfaces. When machining from contours only, you are required to manually synchronize the contours. Swarf supports several different modes that control how to machine down the sides.

Creating a turning setup, facing, machining a turning profile, machining a profile groove, cutting an external thread and cutting off the part.

The suggested course duration is a guideline.

Course topics and duration may be modified by the instructor based upon the knowledge and skill level of the course participants, and training can be taken either on site or at one of our conveniently located local training centres.

The course is Autodesk Authorised with Courseware, and Certificate of Completion awarded

Autodesk Fusion 360 Training

Autodesk Fusion 360 Training and Fusion 360 Courses

Autodesk Fusion 360 training ensures that you make the most of this unique 3D Design, Simulation and CAM programming tool. Fusion connects your entire product design and development process into a single cloud-based platform that works on your Mac and PC.

Fusion 360 screenshotYou can use Autodesk Fusion 360 to model your design in 3D, before using simulation tools to analyse your design for strength or light-weighting. You can then chose how to output your designs. You can use Fusion 360 to create files for 3D printing, programme your CAM machine or create traditional 2D Drawings.

Fusion 360 comes with embedded data management and collaboration tools making it the complete product innovation platform and enrolling on a Fusion 360 CAD course is a great way to start building your 3D design skills in product design and manufacturing.

Given the power of the software it is relatively easy to pick up but you can short cut the route to becoming a Fusion 3D power user with the help of our enthusiastic instructors. Once you are familiar with all elements of the software your business will then be able to benefit from the connected workflow in Autodesk Fusion 360, taking you from concept design through simulation to CAM and 3D printing all from within the same CAD package.

Graitec offer an extensive training portfolio and can deliver training at our countrywide Autodesk training centres, on your own premises or even online with our flexible or certified Autodesk online training platform.

Fusion 360 Training Courses

Fusion 360 has been developed for a number of different industry disciplines. Our Fusion 360 Tutorials have been broken up into an Essentials course to help you with the basics and advanced modules in specific subjects such as CAE and CAM.
