HSMAdvisor 0.701 Has been released!

December 31, 2013, 3:07 am by Eldar Gerfanov

Happy New Year !

First of all i would like to thank everybody for their continuing support and feedback - without you my work would not be this rewarding and fun.
This holiday season sale has been a success and it is only reassuring me that i am moving in the right direction regarding development of this software.

Also 20 days after the very first release of FSWizard for iOS, sales for it and the Android versions have been going very strong. Which means i will be putting even more effort into improving the mobile versions as well.

New things in HSMAdvisor 0.701:

  • Cut and Form taps have been added.
  • Boring Bar has been added to the tool type list
  • Scallop calculator has been added for ballnose type endmills

Updated and fixed things:

  • Effective diameter for tapered endmills (like V-Bits) has been fixed
  • Deflection model for endmills has been improved
  • BallNose endmills are now considered slotting (floor milling) only when their WOC is set equal to the diameter of the tool.
    When WOC is not equal to the tip Dia, it is presumed the cutter is milling the wall rather than the floor
  • Some Tool Geometry fields have been moved to a new tab.

Again after this release i will shift my attention back to mobile versions of FSWizard

HSMAdvisor status report

December 9, 2013, 1:27 am by Eldar Gerfanov

Hello guys.

There have not been any updates for quite a while now.

But it is so for a reason.

See i am in the mids of implementing some long awaited features.

So far Boring bars and taps are in the works. I am also planning to include plunging feedrates and revise some other tooling definitions.

If you have something small you wish to see implemented in the next release let me know.


The sale is over.

November 14, 2013, 12:29 am by Eldar Gerfanov

The sale is officially over!

I would like to thank everybody who INVESTED in HSMAdvisor and FSWizard development.

Thanks to your support and funding i am able to continue working and improving upon my and YOUR software.

In a little over a year we have done a lot of work and there are many more amazing features in the pipeline. Anything we can dream of can be acomplished if enough effort is made.

Thank you.


Sigh, me sad..

November 12, 2013, 12:03 am by Eldar Gerfanov

Today i got another review on my free FSWizard Android app.

It wasnt bad. The guy gave 4 out of 5 stars, but then he added that he would gladly pay 4-6$ and that 18$ for the pro version is beyond reasonable.

I should have shut up.

But i never can.

I replied that the price is what it is, explaided my point of view and thanked him for a good review.

He then changed his rating to just two stars...

And then denied that he initially gave me 4!

Sir. Take your business somwhere else.

Update: guy changed his rating to one star and wrote he does not know what 4-6$ i am talking about.

Friends, if you know a guy named David Alwine, keep away from him. He is an utter lying jerk!

Comparing HSMAdvisor vs. FSWizard:Mobile and other products

Update: It has been a while since i updated this table. So i decided to bump it.

I am often asked what are the differences between HSMAdvisor and FSWizard CNC Machinist's Speed and Feed Calculators.

To address it in a form that will be easy to understand, here is a little neat table. I also included competing software into the last column, so people can compare and make better decisions.
