I would like to thank everyone who has helped with the development of our software by investing your time and money, making suggestions, reporting bugs, recommending our software on various professional online message boards and to your colleagues.

Every bit of money I charge for our software goes back to development.

Unlike most other software developers, who often hold back on features to not allow their products to compete with each-other, every useful feature available on mobile FSWizard goes to the desktop-based HSMAdvisor and vise-versa. Even if it ends up hurting overall sales.

I was the first developer who was able to bring a speed and feed calculator as complex as FSWizard to the mobile platform and I have just uploaded another update to FSWizard Mobile app, that makes it even more powerful. Almost as powerful in fact as HSMAdvisor.

Why bother? Why create a competing product that does almost as much, but costs almost 3 times cheaper?

Because I know that most of our mobile users are not only unable to buy a more expensive desktop product, but they are also often younger, less experienced and hold machinist positions without access to desktop computers.

These users deserve every help they need to grow skills and their careers.

And when they grow to be CNC Programmers and get to sit in the office, they would need something more convenient and more powerful.

I hope they then remember that the same guy who develops FSWizard:Mobile also develops an even cooler desktop application called HSMAdvisor, that will certainly help keep their bosses even happier than before!

Once again, thank you, guys. Please have a Safe and Prosperous New Year.


Here is the list of recent changes to FWizard:Mobile v1.38

  • New Workpiece Materails
    FSWizard:Mobile has now caught up with HSMAdvisor regarding its material database
    The sheer number of them hakes me think about adding a search feature, similar to HSMAdvisor's
  • New 90 Degree Flat Head Screw Reference
  • 2 New tool types: Solid Ball Nose and Indexed Ball Nose end mills
  • Default depth of cut for milling, now accounts for Number of Flutes and Workpiece Material
    Another feature that migrated from HSMAdvisor. FSWizard now accounts for even more factors when it suggests default cutting depth
  • Updated Triangle Calculator
  • Geometry calculators now show dimentioning at the right time
  • HSMAdvisor login info will be stored on the phone
    Holders of joined HSMADvisor/FSWizard license now automatically update their Databases when installing a new version.

HSMAdvisor Status Update

December 23, 2014, 6:09 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

First of all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !

There has been a spur in development in the last couple of weeks.
Mainly due to the fact that i took a vacation from my day job.

I also used this time to pay a visit to some businesses operating in the area to get some feedback on my software, hear out their needs and desires.

I have not been able to post about the latest updates, so let's summarize what we have at this moment in the latest v1.110 update

  • New 90 Degree metric Flat Head screw reference tool
  • Ability to use comma sign instead of dot as a decimal point.
    HSMAdvisor will still convert comma to dot, but now it treats input properly
    This was done to accommodate users whose language settings use comma on their numpad
  • Fixed scaling for all DPI types.
  • Added a bunch of materials like Machinable Wax, Plywood, some Steels etc.
  • Improved and made more predictable loading of tools and cuts from the database
  • Made improvements to Machine definition window.

Most of the work has been finished on the CAM integration feature.
If any of you, my users, feel like you want the FREE integration with their favorite CAM, please nag your CAM support and/or sales desk!!



Now did I mention I plan on NOT changing a dime for the integration feature?

If not, then let me repeat it again.

CAM Integration feature will come at no price for my users!

So if i were you, i would file support tickets (make some phone calls, write letters) to your CAM providers and ask them to consider enabling their software to speak with mine.

My contact details can be found here:

Have a nice New Year!

November 29, 2014, 8:17 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

Here is a list of new and improved features:

What's New

  • Material Drop-Down list now shows 'X' on the row when the current Library Tool has Custom Surface Speed and Chipload settings.
  • Load Tool dialog box now has Tool Type Icon. The same column shows a readable Operation Type Icon for finishing, roughing, etc.
  • Drilling Tool Types now allow user to enter a custom Pecking value
  • Milling Tool Types now have Editable Plunge RPM and Plunge Feedrate
  • Milling Tool Types' updated Circle/Ramp Dialog now allows to specify whether ramp settings apply to Plunge feedrate of Milling feedrate

What's Improved

  • Custom Speeds and Feeds tab on Edit Tool Dialog was improved with new buttons to reset custom Surface Speed and Chipload settings
    Glitch with certain diameters in metric mode being missed is fixed
  • Load Tool/Cut Dialog box' Search was improved
  • Load Tool/Cut Dialog box now features much improved tool and cut list with better readability and usability
  • Ballnose Tools have been improved to better show changing effective diameter for different depths of cut.

Now, because a picture is worth a thousand words, here are some screenshots as well.

Updated and Improved Load Tool/Cut Dialog:

Note new Tool Type and Cut type Icons in the third column.

New editable Plunge RPM and Plunge Feed input fields and Materials being marked with "X" when a tool has been loaded that uses Custom Speeds and Feeds:

Circle/Ramp button now launches an updated Circular Interpolation/ Ramping dialog box, that contains 2 new switches that allow user to choose which feedrate this compensation window affects:

Select Ramp Plunging to have Plunge Feedrate being affected by the Interpolation/Plunging parameters.
Select Ramp Milling to have those parameters affect Cutting Feedrate (Feed input field)

HSMAdvisor v0.950

November 10, 2014, 9:48 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

I have just uploaded the latest version of HSMAdvisor

In this one I made some changes (again) to the layout of the FSWizard tab.

Changes were made according to Your feedback, so i hope you guys like it!

As you can see from the screen shot above Tool Type selection drop-down lists have been moved to the Tool Data panel.
This was made to make it more obvious which values get saved and loaded when user does operations with saved tools.

For the same purpose Saved Cut drop-down is now located on top of all cut parameters that it affects.

The top-most panel (Workpiece) now contains Machine and Tool Library drop-down lists.

I urge everybody to download this update as it fixes all of the existing issues regarding layout changes.

Also in the previous version, when Trial version gets expired, the Splash Screen blocks the License Activation dialog, which would make it impossible to purchase a license or enter your license information.

This glitch and many others have been fixed and i would like to ask everybody to download the latest release as soon as possible!


HSMAdvisor v0.900

October 28, 2014, 8:21 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

New version 0.900 includes one big improvement:

A new "Load Tool" button was added on the Toll Data panel.
When you click on that button, a brand-new "Select Tool/Cut" dialog box appears.

Using this dialog box you can quickly find and load any Tool/Cut from your Tool Database:

When you click on the "Toll Library" header, panel expands allowing user to filter out the tools and cuts that he wishes to see.

Also Expand All checkbox allows to expand all tools on the table.

In the future updates i am planning to completely replace the functionality of the two separate Tool and Cut Drop-Down lists with this single dialog window.

If you have any feedback, positive or negative or any ideas, please let me know!


FSWizard Mobile Update

October 11, 2014, 9:54 am by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

Yesterday I uploaded another update to FSWizard:Mobile app.

Apart from the newest materials and coatings that are already present in HSMAdvisor PC calculator, i also added Socket Head and Imperial Flat head screw reference.

You can download the updated app on Google Play appstore


HSMAdvisor v0.880

October 4, 2014, 9:11 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

Trial Reset For Everybody!

I have just uploaded another update to HSMAdvisor. You can download the updated version over here ->

This update resets trials on ALL unlicensed computers.

In it i addressed some of your concerns  regarding readability of the screen.
A qualified committee, consisting of me and my lovely wife, who no-doubt has better taste than me, decided upon the new screen layout.


Basically i am returning to the old layout where controls are grouped in blocks and not in rows like in previous version.

Please let me know if you have any feedback and want something improved upon!

Other new things in this update include 2 new high performance coatings - nACo and nACRo.

Also in this update i improved licensing by granting floating license holders a grace period when they are unable to connect to the server.
