HSMAdvisor 0.610 Has just been released

November 2, 2013, 6:17 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

In this release I have added CAD/CAM integration.

Please read the latest tutorial in HSMAdvisor Tutorials section here
This is a pretty Unique way of doing it.

It is still in the beta-mode.
But it is fully functional. I have tested it on MasterCAM and SurfCAM with great results.
While some functionality is not supported well on all cadcam packages, it is still much better than nothing.

Please send me your feedback on how it works with your CADCAM package.

I have also added a list of recently used materials.

Now material list will have 6 recently used items at the very top of it.
Later on i will allow user to enter whatever number of recent items he wants to see there. But for now its just 6.

New Computer ID and New License keys

Starting from this release i have changed how Computer ID keys are generated.
This was done to fix problems some of the users experienced when they added or removed additional hardware on their computers.

New Computer ID's mean License keys have been changed for all users as well.
Not to worry though, License keys will be automatically updated for all of our users, so no action from their side is required.

If you have active license. You will get a message telling you what happened and your license file will be updated automatically.

Some bugs got fixed as well.

All of them were pretty minor, nothing to write home about.

Material definitions got updated as well.

Added several materials, updated speeds and feeds for tool steels and stainless steels.

I still have to add some of the previously requested materials (like Weldox Graphite, etc) to the list.
And i am planning to add it in the next release.

Chiploads for micro-milling were changed as well.

Chiploads for micro-endmills (below 1/16 dia) were reduced significantly.


New FSWizard for android is out!

October 8, 2013, 11:40 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

I have added Fillet Calculator to our android version.

It allsows to calculate tangent points on a circle and two lines.

All you need to specify is an angle beteen them and a radius.

Also lines intersection point can be moved around.

As a result it returns coordinates of the points and the centre of the circle.

HSMAdvisor is going commercial!

June 27, 2013, 12:55 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Hello gentlemen,

On September the 1st HSMAdvisor will turn one year old.

At that point 75$ for life deal will stop being offered.

Prices will go up.
New payment plans will be introduced.

Considered packages are:

  • Current Release Single Seat License (1 key): xxx$
  • Current Release Five Seat license (5 keys): xxx$ (30% savings)
  • Current Release Company-Wide License (Unlimited seats within company premises): xxx$

Program Upgrades (Upgrading from version 1.xx to version 2.0):

  • Single Seat License Upgrade: xx$
  • Five Seat license Upgrade: xxx$
  • Company-Wide License Upgrade: xxx$

 

I am not exactly set on pricing right now, so i can not say just how much things will cost.
I can only promise that pricing will continue being more than reasonable and very competitive.

Until September i will release several updates, but I will no longer offer trial extensions after September the 1st.

Announced changes will only affect commercial HSMAdvisor.

Free Online FSWizard will remain free for everyone.

  • Click on DOC label in turning mode now resets DOC to default

    HSMAdvisor 0.200 Is available for download

    May 13, 2013, 12:10 am by Eldar Gerfanov

    This HSMAdvisor v0.200 release is a major step forward.

    Aside from major rewrites that i did to improve stability of the code there are also new features that will improve user experience 
    and move us one step ahead towards making it the best tool for machinists. 

    New Features

    • Circular Interpolation feedrate compensation
      Now you can get compensated feedrates for milling inside and outside round features.
    • HSM and Chip Thinning 
      are now two separate check boxes.
      Chip thinning allows to compensate for thinning chip thickness at low radial and axial engagements.
      HSM allows to increase cutting speed when chip thinning occurs. 
    • Manufacturer's Speed and Chipload input
      For when you need to enter manufacturer recommended S&F values.
    • .NET 2.0 Framework 
      Starting from this release i have downgraded required framework version from 4.0 to 2.0
      This will allow us to target wider audience as it immediately drops requirements for Windows computers.
    • UNEF and UNS threads
      New thread sizes were added into the Threading section. 
    • Drill Chart 
      was expanded to drills up to 1.5" in diameter

    Bugs Fixed

    All the existing bugs were tackled when code re-write happened.
    I took a long time testing and fixing all of the problem and suspect areas, so at this poing it should be bug-free.
