Just finished setting up the 4th axis.

FSWizard Machinist Speed And Feed Calculator has a new feature!

Filtering was added to the Cut Cloud tool list, making it easy to find the tools you are looking for:

You can filter by the library name, Tool type, and/or by a plain-text search.

Additionally, the list now checks the version and updates in the background, which means the page now appears almost immediately. No more waiting for 15-20 seconds to download all your tools each time you open it.

Thanks to everybody who made improvement suggestions and feature requests!

As usual, you can find the links to the FSWizard app here: https://fswizard.com/

Cheers!

The Save button saves the current state of checkboxes as default.

The long-awaited feature, that has been available on FSWizard for some time now is now available in HSMAdvisor as well!

It is currently in the MVP stage, but now when you log in to HSMADvisor Cloud on both the FSWizard and HSMAdvisor (sharing is only allowed within the same account), the cloud tools are automatically synchronized between the two apps.

Check out the latest version here: https://hsmadvisor.com/download

To enable cloud libraries in HSMAdvisor, please Register and/or Log-in to the HSMAdvisor Cloud in Settings or by clicking on Actions->Cut Cloud->Log-in in the Tool Database tab.

Then select the Tool Library you want to sync with the cloud and go to Actions->Tool Library.
Enable the "Sync with HSMAdvisor Cloud" option.

Synced tools are now available on both apps:

Also, a couple of materials were added:

  • AISI431, 1.4057, X17CrNi16-2 (QT800 and QT900)
  • Aluminum 3.1645; EN AW-2007
  • AISI4820 (1.6587, 18CrNiMo7-6)

Please make sure to send me any feedback you have on this or other issues!

T-800

August 8, 2021, 10:25 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Programmed and machined a T-800 head from thingiverse:

T-800 Picture

Here is a finished scull video from all sides: https://youtube.com/shorts/mdclf5LvdyM?feature=share

In the 1st op I milled the base with a 1/4-20 tapped hole right where my Z0Y0Z0 will be.

Then I mounted the base on a square fixture using the tapped hole. This way as I index the square fixture in the vise, my part Z0Y0Z0 remain in the same spot.

2nd op was the back of the scull

3rd op was the face, and the 4th and 5th were the sides

Here is a YouTube video of some of the 3rd op machining. Warning Loud Noise!

FSWizard Cut Cloud Integration.

June 30, 2021, 10:04 am by Eldar Gerfanov

New feature coming to FSWizard - the ability to save your tools (and later cutting parameters) online for re-use later.

It is now a feature in development, but the online app already has it enabled: https://app.fswizard.com.

Take it for a spin!

This was initially planned only for the HSMAdvisor app. But since it is easier to develop for FSWizard, I decided to implement it there first. Iron out all the kinks and the flow and then roll it out for HSMAdvisor as well.

Yes, that's right. You will be able to share tools between FSWizard and HSMAdvisor!

Cheers!

FSWizard Print Report!

FSWizard can now print calculation reports right from your browser or device!

Check the app out at https://fswizard.com

Just go to the Results area and tap/click on the Print Report button.
FSWizard will show the print preview dialog.

Tap/click on the Printer icon in the header, and your OS-specific print dialog will show up.

In other news, I am progressing well on adding Tool Libraries functionality to FSWizard.

This is going to be a long-awaited and huge update!

Cheers!

HSMAdvisor: Monthly Subscription!

January 26, 2021, 12:25 pm by Eldar Gerfanov
example_new_cnc.png

Since the beginning of the pandemic, I wondered how I could make HSMAdvisor more accessible and affordable for the customers?

Then it hit me: "What if I create a subscription plan for a price of 2 cups of coffee per month?"

So let me introduce a new HSMAdvisor payment option: $5/mo Unlimited Monthly Subscription.

With it, you get all the HSMAdvisor Power without the usual upfront commitment - you can simply drop the subscription at any time.

https://hsmadvisor.com/?page=Buy

Obviously, all the other options are still available under the "HSMAdvisor Licenses" category.
