A customer shares his video of HSM machining

July 15, 2015, 9:45 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

It is no secret that i am trying to make my software fit the broadest possible group of people.
And while my much-respected hobby customers is a big deal for me, industrial machining is where HSMAdvisor really shines.

Recently a PracticalMachinist forum member Atomkinder posted a video of him machining something on his 1997 Fadal VMC.
Here is what he had to say:

I use it daily, and I can't think of a time it's let me down.
I second HSMAdvisor. I own my own seat (work doesn't have one) because I like it that much.

This isn't particularly special, but it is a 1997 Fadal VMC2216 box way machine. Removed a whole tool and something like 40% of the cycle time from the second operation of this part.

And here is the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHN5z4EKODQ

40% of the cycle time. Aint bad, is it?

In industrial settings, with such great savings HSMAdvisor may very well pay for itself within a day or less!


Changes to Multiple Seat Discount and Return Policy

July 15, 2015, 5:03 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

From this point on all license types will have a 30% progressive multiple seat discount.

Also

A 30 Day Money Back Guarantee has been introduced for all floating licenses.

If you for any reason are not satisfied with our product, simply let us know and we will refund your full purchase amount!


HSMAdvisor Partners up with Micro 100

July 7, 2015, 8:46 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Micro 100 Specialty Carbide Tooling company has approached me asking for a branded version of my FSWizard:Online Speeds and Feeds Calculator.

Customer requests for Speeds and Feeds amount for a large portion of their customer support calls.

I hope this partnership will unload their phones AND bring some new users to my commercial products such as desktop HSMAdvisor and FSWizard for mobile platforms.

And here is the link for the custom Speed and Feed calculator i made for them http://micro100.hsmadvisor.com/

PS.

A big. A VERY BIG and VERY GOOD news are coming to those of my users who also use MasterCAM  :)


Upgrades to the Online Store

July 2, 2015, 1:43 am by Eldar Gerfanov

I have made some changes to the HSMAdvisor online store.

As of now users can purchase any number of seats they want.

Be it 1,2, 5 or 50. Does not matter any more. User gets to choose the number he wants. A progressive 25% discount will be applied on purchases of multiple seats.

Which means discount will start from 25% for 2 seats and end with 37% for 50 seats.

This should help great deal for people who want some odd number of seats.

And just a remainder: the current 15% on over 90$ is still active until July 4.

Cheers!


Its HSMAdvisor Sale Time!

June 21, 2015, 11:40 am by Eldar Gerfanov

We have not had any discounts for almost half a year.

I think it ifs time for a sale.

Check out our HSMAdvisor web store page for currently available deals.

Basically everything above $90 is on 15% sale until Fourth of July.

Happy Canada Day and Happy Fourth Of July!


HSMAdvisor v1.152 released

June 15, 2015, 9:22 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

I have not announced the previous update here, so i am going to cover the latest changes here.

New and Improved Things:

  • Fine-tuned Speeds for drilling tools
  • Added more database self-repair capability
  • Added "Uddeholm" vendor' material family

An update to port those changes to Android and IOS apps is under way

Would like to thank everyone for their continuous support and feedback.

I do not know what i would do without you guys!

Thanks!


HSMAdvisor v1.150 released

April 26, 2015, 12:04 am by Eldar Gerfanov

New and updated features

  • New workpiece materials
    Cutlery stainless steels have been added
  • Better scaling and control positioning on "Speeds and Feeds" page
  • Tool Database page now displays Libraries in multiple rows, which makes it easier to find stuff.
  • HSMAdvisor now installs by default into "Program Files (x86)" folder
    It will still copy data files into your "AppDataRoamingHSMAdvisor" folder. So it will still pick up your old tool library and license file.
  • HSMAdvisor.ZIP archive now does not contain installer files, but rather ready-to use application folders, which you can unpack and use without installation.

As usual check our downloads page to get the update.

Now i know you are wondering when i will release updates to the mobile versions as well.
That should (hopefully) be done by this Monday.

Cheers!


HSMAdvisor v1.146 released

March 29, 2015, 10:08 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

We have one major feature in this release and a lot of small improvements:

Starting form this update every HSMAdvisor installer and executable file will be digitally signed.
This will keep both your IT guy and your Antivirus Program happy.

I made a decision to invest into signing my executables because users were complaining about AV programs like Norton shutting down my software.

You can download the latest version in our downloads section


What's New:

  • Digital signing added to the executable files
  • Maximum Tapping RPM added to the Machine Definition dialog to recognize the fact that tapping speed is often a lot smaller than the maximum spindle speed available on most machines.

Improvements:

  • Major work is being done to translate HSMAdvisor to other languages
  • Typos fixed all over the place
  • Machine Definition dialog functions improved
  • Thread Milling tool type now includes DOC and WOC fields
  • Cutting speeds for several materials have been adjusted
  • Fixed condition where restoring the window in "Narrow" mode would cause controls to disappear until Maximize button was pressed
  • Tool drop-down box now better scales and crops extra-long values to make room for all columns

FSWizard 1.40 Released

February 14, 2015, 10:47 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

I have just finished uploading the latest update for FSWizard apps to both iOS and Android stores.

Your iOS update should be available in about 3 to 5 days, while it is already available on Google Play.

As always my thanks go to Apple for killing 90% of my day on trying to find and fix stupid xCode quirks.
Thanks, apple guys! I wouldn't know what to do with all of my time if your stuff worked the way it was supposed to!

Here are just some of the changes in the latest version v1.40

  • Added new materials
  • Fixed Turning MRR/HP Calculation
  • Fixed Sticky Lead Angle
  • Changed WOC label in Turning mode to DOC

  • A new tab All in the myCut DB Library List shows tools and cuts from all libraries
