HSMAdvisor v1.600 More International Support

April 27, 2019, 8:40 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

You know this is good...

when we bump a whole TENTH in the version number!

This release focused on fixing various small issues blah-blah.

The main news is the HSMAdvisor's Translator Form that can now not only Upload, but also Download languages from the cloud!
Which means you can now download someone's unfinished translation file, use it, add to it (hopefully) and upload it again!

When you download someone else's language file with the same name as yours, only the untranslated lines will be updated.

From this point on I will be adding languages that contain certain percent of coverage to the installation.
Installed languages will also be updated as time goes on.

At this point we have the following list of installed languages available:

  • English (main)
  • French (full)
  • Russian (full)
  • Spanish (almost full)
  • Slovak(partial)
  • Czech (partial)
  • Polish (partial)
  • Turkish (partial)

Huge thanks to everybody who contributed to the translation effort!
So if you did, please contact me if you need any licenses (have your user name handy, so i can identify your work).

By the way, do i need to remind that good things happen to those who contribute?

Keep tuned for more cool updates to come out this spring!

HSMAdvisor 1.535 Release Candiadate!

November 5, 2018, 2:44 am by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

That was more work than I thought!

I have decided to upload the new HSMAdvisor Release Candidate here.

Please check out the attached screenshot:

Dark is the default sceme. But you can switch to the "Light" scheme in settings by uncehcking "Use Dark Theme":

I still have to do some work to the "Light" theme to make things more visually appealing, but i think i did a lot of work with simplification of the UI.

Please find the download link below as this update is not yet available (and will not be) as an official HSMAdvisor release.

Also if you have nay feedback (good or bad) please Contact me!

HSMAdvisor Design Changes

September 27, 2018, 3:18 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

IF you were wondering if i had fallen of the face of the earth, here is what i was up to.

I have been developing a new cleaner look for HSMAdvisor (see the attachment).

First thing you notice is the Dark background color. I plan to make that the new default background.

The color theme will be configurable to appeal to those who want to stay on the light side.

Label positioning will change to above the input fields, because it seems to make it easier on the eyes to associate the label and the field.

The Tool and Cut drop-downs will be removed along with the "menu" buttons on the right of them. Tool and Cut selection will be moved to "Load Tool/Cut" buttons.
I believe the Load Tool/Cut dialog to be the better option.

Tool Limits and Speed and Feed Overrides expandable panels will be merged with Gauges and Cut Data panels respectively.
This will further lighten up the interface.

Soon I will publish a test version for our users to try out before i make it an official update.

Do you have any feedback on the changes I am making?
Make it known, because it is supposed to be done for your convenience!

Best regrards!

HSMAdvisor v1.531

July 31, 2018, 2:52 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

This update marks a major pivot in HSMAdvisor development.

Behind the scenes the groung-work has been laid for tight integration between HSMAdvisor and FSWizard.

Next steps will include sharing of the tool and cut data with the FSWizard mobile app.

Whats new in this HSMAdvisor update:

  • New materials: DME Steel 1, 2,3 & 7 and others.
  • Improved Machine Definitions: Program now does not allow to upload duplicate machines to the cloud: you need to clone your machine first.
  • Fixed issues with acessing CutCloud Fixed labelling and incorrect cut filtering

Thank you, our supporters, for the continuing feedback and support!

FSWizard Machinist Speed and Feed App Update!

March 20, 2018, 7:34 am by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

After more than a year in development and having its entire code base rewritten FSWizard Android app has finally been released to production!

The main goal of the initial production release was to not drop the ball. So the number of new features is relatively small.

The biggest visible improvement is the new design that conforms to the mobile UI standards.

We also support more materials in the lite version of the app than ever:

For HSMAdvisor customers all the available materials will be downloaded after the Login.

Another improvement is the sliding Speed and Feed overrides that are now located not only on the usual Overrides panel, but also on the Result panel:

This allows you to see the effect your changes make in the real time.

The new version of the app also allows to push immediate updates and hot fixes.
So expect a lot of new features delivered to you faster.

As you might have guessed I did not re-design the whole app just to add a couple of new sliders and a new design.

My plans is to fully integrate FSWizard with HSMAdvisor having them exchange tool libraries and cutting data.
Ant the core design changes that i made will allow for this work to proceed forward.

New FSWizard. Check it out if you have not already!

PS. for now the update is only available for Lite Android version of the app. FSWizard PRO Android and all version for iOS are still sporting old version. But I expect to update them within a week as well.

New Advantage of Floating License

January 25, 2018, 3:06 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

When asked by a prospective customer which License Type a he/she should buy, I always say "If you have Internet connection, buy the Floating License".

The advantage of Floating License for this is very simple: it offers great flexibility.

  • Flexibility in where to use the software: You can install and register computers all on your own without needing to contact support.
  • Floating License can be used on multiple computers. And depending on how many seats are in the license, will determine how many HSMAdvisor instances can run at the same time.

And now we have 2 more points

License owner can set up a separate License Access password.
This allows organisations to give access to their HSMAdvisor seats without compromising their License Accounts. 

Second improvement is the "Max Seat Parking Period" option that can be used to make sure users do not occupy seats for periods of time, longer than allowed by the owner.

These options were introduced to make it easy for College professors to issue temporary seats to their students.

You can check it out on our updated License Control panel:

Just click on the "Set License Password" button after logging in to your license.

HSMAdvisor hook for MasterCAM 2018

October 30, 2017, 7:55 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

I have just uploaded the HSMAdvisor hook for MasterCAM 2018.

That calls for a drink!

The C++/CRL interop that runs on the back end has been developed over 2 years ago and i have not opened it much since.
Because there were some breaking changes in 2018, i had to reopen the can of worms and ... whew! That was not eazy to remember all the horrible things i have done so long ago ago!

Any way. Now we have a nice lineup of HSMAdvisor plugins for 3 latest MasterCam versions (X9, 2017 and 2018).
