HSM BETA Mode in HSMWork, Inventor HSM & Fusion

BETA MODE - longBeta mode is our way of allowing users to test and explore areas of the software we are actively working on to gather valuable feedback from our users community.  Users are encouraged to join us in discussing these new features and functions in the Beta Tests Forum:

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/beta-testing-english-deutsch/bd-p/219

Here we will share details of new features released in BETA mode that we are looking for feedback on.

Now, before I show you how to enable Beta mode, I would like to cover the technical impacts and guidelines for using Beta mode:

  1. BETA software may not ever make it into a released product.
  2. Keep all discussions and comments surrounding beta functions to the HSM beta forum as to not confuse users searching the forum for help with released software.
  3. Operations generated using BETA mode will continue to be generated using BETA mode.  This remains the case even after BETA mode is disabled.

 

Please keep in mind that while BETA mode works in all three products, HSMWorks, Inventor HSM & Fusion 360, each product may have different beta functionality available based on what platform we are doing our testing on.  This is should not be an indication that the other products will not receive these new features.   For example, Tool library work is being focused on in Fusion.  Once complete, this will be exposed in all 3 products.

CAM beta mode in Fusion does not automatically turn off when you restart the application.  It is very important that you turn off BETA mode when you are finished testing new features.
