April 24, 2013, 8:27 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Hello,

I have finally updated the looks of our mobile version.

HSMAdvisor v0.101 (FIXED)

April 14, 2013, 11:34 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

HSMAdvisor v0.1 is now available.

(newest version is 0.101)

A decision has been made that updates containing new features will increment by 0.1 each time

Bug fix updates and improvement updates will increment by 0.01

This should be a hint that first fully commercial release is in sight. (you still have another 6 months or so of free updates).

There is only one major feature

  • Machinery with gear boxes is now supported- users can enter a list of RPM machine can have set and FSWizard will force all calculations to stick to those pre-defined numbers.
    There is a sample machine called "Manual Lathe" that demonstrates this feature. You can use "Import" function in Machine Definitions dialog to load that machine and see how it works

Several bugs have been fixed

  • Manually entered RPM for lathe tools have been fixed
  • Minimum RPM entered in Machine Definitions dialog now actually forces FSWizard to not go below that value and generate a warning.

 

How Sticky RPM works:

  • Create new machine in Machine Definitions by clicking Add button and giving it a name you would recoginze.
  • Fill up all of the input boxes including Min and Max RPM, Horse Power and Torque.
  • Enter list of RPM values your machine supports into the Power Curve table.
    (Note RPM values HAVE to be in incremental order)
  • Against each RPM row enter the max Horesepower your machine has (because its a gear-box, machine HP value is constant at any spindle speed)
    Tip: if Max torque was unknown, now you can enter the highest value you see in Torque row.
  • Check Calculations Stick to pre-defined RPM only check box (Yes i know the picture shows that box unchecked, but you have to CHECK it)
  • Check Use Horse Power Curve Compensation check box

Thats it!

Now FSWizard will force calculated RPM to match the closest RPM value from the table.

HSMAdvisor 0.023 Has been released

April 7, 2013, 11:26 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

This release is a major step forward.
We are starting to wander away from just Speeds and Feeds calculator part of the project.

Version 0.022 was a little buggy.

All reported and known bugs have been fixed.

New update version is 0.023

New features:

  • Threads page: You can now get thread cutting and tapping data for most popular threads in north America (UNC/UNF/ISO).
    The list of supported threads and features will grow according to necessity and user feedback.
  • Machine Profiles now have 2 new buttons: Clone and Import.
    Clone button simply copies selected machine definition with a different name.
    Import button is needed to be able to update/add machine definitions from default machine list. As users modify and customize their Machine List, thay are now able to add machine definitions hassle-free from default_machines.xml file that is supplied with every update.

Bugs Fixed:

  • Sticky Ball nose check box

  • Max HP improperly rounded

Additions:

  • Thanks to Greg Jackson and Matt Doeppers from Tormach i was able to create Horse Power/RPM curves for Tormach PCNC770 and PCNC1100 models (if you install over previous version, you can use import function to add those machines to the list)

HSMAdvisor 0.021 Has just been released

March 17, 2013, 11:25 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

New things: None.

Well not really.

First of all alot of small bugs has been fixed.

Second of all i added a neat picture to Drilling operation.

It now shows what each drill specific field means

Also. Unfortunately all current license key holder will have to get new license keys.

If you currently have a license key, please e-mail me your new Computer-ID
And i will send you a new license key.

NOTE:

If you are installing over previous version of HSMAdvisor, you are encouraged to perform complete uninstall of the old version.

Othervise what happens is old settings file is not compatible with the new one.

This will cause Default Tool Type, Tool material and Coating presets to get lost and you end up with a funny looking FSWizard page.

Correcting this is extremely easy:

You need to select some tool type (IE: End Mill), select some Tool Material (IE. HSS) and finally select some Coating (IE. NONE)

This will fix the problem.

Attached below is a screenshot of what it looks like when settings mismatch happens, not a pretty sight i agree, but there is no need to panic.

(Note to self: add version check for every file)

    New Name for FSWizard is HSMAdvisor !

    January 28, 2013, 12:06 am by Eldar Gerfanov

    As you know the long-awaited standalone version of FSWizard is being prepared for the release right now.

    I am changing the name it is going to be marketed under.

    Down the line The product is going to consist of many modules.
    And in order to give it a name that would encompass a wide variety of tools under one umbrella it has been decided to change the name of the solution to HSMAdvisor

    A new website is being constructed right now around new product

    It is going to be located at HSMAdvisor.com

    But we are not forgetting where we came from.

    FSWizard is becomming one module inside HSMAdvisor solution.
    So you will still see FSWiz name popping up here and there.

    Also as i said earlyer and robably against better judgement i will keep HSMAdvisor(FSWizard):Online Calulator you have come to love and depend on free for everyone to use.
