Learn how to convert IAM to Powermill with CAD Exchanger
An IAM file is an assembly model created with Inventor CAD and engineering software by Autodesk.
The IAM format comprises parts and subassemblies linked through assembly relationships. A subassembly in an IAM file is a self-contained unit with its collection of parts.
The .iam extension of an Autodesk Inventor Assembly Data File can be viewed using the following software: Autodesk Inventor / Inventor View, and Spaceclaim Engineer software. Autodesk Viewer web application and Fusion 360 integrated CAD / CAM / CAE software environment can import and render an assembly model created with Inventor.
Powermill is a 3D Computer-aided manufacturing app developed by Autodesk Inc. It runs on Microsoft Windows and is used in many different engineering industries to determine optimal toolpaths to reduce time and manufacturing costs.
Powermill rapidly creates toolpaths on large, complex parts, works with surfaces, solids and STL meshes. It uses efficient roughing strategies and can create gouge and collision free toolpaths, which can be edited and optimized. The software obtains comprehensive range of finishing toolpaths, user-defined macros and templates for automated CAM, extensive library of tool types for use with 3- and 5-axis milling, and specialist tools for demanding industries and applications.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
