Update 2 for Autodesk® Inventor HSM™ 2017
Build 4.3.0.050 / January 7, 2017
This document covers all three Inventor CAM products:
- Inventor HSM Express
- Inventor HSM Premium (formerly Inventor HSM)
- Inventor HSM Ultimate (formerly Inventor HSM Pro)
As part of the transition to a combined Autodesk HSM offering, we are adjusting the naming of the different HSMWorks and Inventor HSM editions to align with the “Premium” and “Ultimate” levels. This results in the following transitions:
- “Inventor HSM” becomes “Inventor HSM Premium”
- “Inventor HSM Pro” becomes “Inventor HSM Ultimate”
- “HSMWorks Pro” becomes “HSMWorks Premium”
- “HSMWorks Premium” becomes “HSMWorks Ultimate”
Capabilities of the respective editions remains unchanged.
Please note that this transition is still a work-in-progress, and you may still encounter areas in the product or documentation where the previous naming remains. We apologize for any confusion this may cause.
All versions of Inventor HSM (including Inventor HSM Express)
- Added Turret parameter for milling tools.
- Added “Live Tool” support.
- Fixed problem where re-ordering operations would reverse their order in the browser tree.
- Improved stability in the User Interface
