Autodesk Inventor HSM and HSMWorks

Posted on February 26, 2018 by Synergis Product Support Specialist, Mark Lancaster

When you subscribe to Product Design & Manufacturing Collection you are entitled to Inventor HSM (Ultimate) and/or HSMWorks (Ultimate).  Lately we have been receiving a few questions about this and I wanted to clarify what needs to be accomplished in order to use this product within Autodesk Inventor and/or SOLIDWORKS.

Inventor HSM:  Designated solely for Inventor and you must subscribe to Product Design & Manufacturing Collection in order to receive this benefit.

HSMWorks:  Designated for those who are in a mixed Autodesk Inventor and SOLIDWORKS environment.   However HSMWorks only covers the SOLIDWORKS environment and you must subscribe to Product Design & Manufacturing Collection in order to receive this SOLIDWORKS benefit.

When it comes to downloading and installing this product, it may also be a little unclear in what needs to be done.

  1. Supporting versions of Autodesk Inventor and/or SOLIDWORKS must be installed first and the CAD application should be launched at least once.
  2. To run HSM under Inventor, you must access your Autodesk Account, expand your Collection, select and download Inventor HSM. Do not select HSMWorks to do this.
  3. To run HSM under SOLIDWORKS, you would select HSMWorks.

Until next time…
