Write G-Code directly from Inventor?

Recommended Posts

Does Autodesk Inventor have the ability to write the necessary G-Code for a CNC machine? If so can anybody point me in the right direction regarding this function? Thanks in advance.

Not to my knowledge (which stops at Inventor 2012). You would need a program like MeshCAM.

MasterCAM is another recommended program.

 

OK...just came across an article that says Fusion 360 now has CAM tools (cloud based). Here's the link to the article.

You can also download HSM Express for free for Inventor 2014-2016, but you may need help getting the installer for the older versions from an authorized reseller...even though its free.

I have Inventor 2016. This is what I was looking for - thanks Mr. Flayler. ReMark, thank you for your suggestion as well.
