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.
