We are Going Social

May 22, 2016, 12:49 am by Eldar Gerfanov

As you may have noticed zero-divide.net website where I post all the updates, research and news have gotten a bunch on new social sharing buttons.

I would like to encourage all our friends to share our web pages with the big wide net!

As I am beginning to realize the potential behind the whole "social networking" thing, I also understand that this is something I should have done from the get-go.

Help this project flourish by recommending our great software and information to your peers on the Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn!

 


6 ways to utilize your CNC spindle (and make your life easier)

May 10, 2016, 11:59 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

We all know what the CNC Milling Machine spindle is used for - to hold the tool. But it is old and boring. Everybody does that.

Here are the 6 interesting and maybe less common ways to utilize machine spindle, increase productivity and solve some problems you never thought you had.

Use your Spindle as a fan to blow chips and coolant off of your work-piece, table and fixturing.

I saw this little gadget at a local IMTS show and it was quite cool. It is installed into a tool holder like a regular cutting tool would be and at the end of the program you can call the it up and run a little table-cleaning program to make your work a lot cleaner!

Tesla Model 3: Is This The End?

April 2, 2016, 1:04 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

There have been purely electric cars long before the Tesla Model 3.

But Tesla has made it cool. Sort of like how Apple made the iPhone cool, Tesla made not just gas-free, environment-saving cars. It made cool high-performance vehicles that are fun to drive.

And nobody really cares that Chevy Volt has already been available for years for a comparable price. Couple of days since its unveil, the new Model 3 has already outsold the Volt. Not a small feat, considering, they are only going to start delivering in about a year!

But Tesla, like Apple, like Amazon is in many ways a disruptive technology.Read More 


We are announcing a New Product!

April 1, 2016, 6:01 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

I would like to announce the launch of a brand new product called HSMCode.

HSMCode combines the power HSMAdvisor speed and Feed calculator, its advanced Tool and Cut Database and the new functionality of HSMCode into one seamless product!

What does HSMCode Do?

HSMCode allows you to create ToolPaths from imported CAD or Solid geometry with ease.

All you need to do is pick features that need to be machined and HSMAdvisor will pick the most suitable tool, calculate proper speeds and feeds and then HSMCode will generate the G-Code for your machine

As simple as that.

You can also create additional geometry using an in-built CAD designer and Simulate your Toolpaths to verify the correctness of your work.

The sales will begin in a couple of months on June 31 2016!

Please contact me if you would like to test the early demo version, affect the development of the software and (depending on the value of your input) receive your Lifetime Subscription for free!

Cheers!


Mind the Gap!

March 29, 2016, 4:22 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Don't you hate when "that guy" cuts your stock a little too short?

Holding on to just 0.060" here. The part is 1.5" tall made out of 4140, which helps it stay in place and not collapse under machining pressure. Pretty sure it would have moved if it was made out of mild steel.

PS. Did I eay I love those CR vise? I do. Can't lift that jaw with a lift truck.


Jazzed-up Registration Module!

March 29, 2016, 8:59 am by Eldar Gerfanov

The number of this site's registered members is approaching 5000 and I am more and more often receiving requests to reset someone's password because they forgot it.

See, up until now there was no way for a user to reset his pass on his own. So I had to do it.

Being as lazy as I am (when it comes to petty chores) I have revamped our registration module.

You can now Register, Login, Forget your Password and Reset it in one convenient place.

Just go to Sign In menu option.

Oh, if you want to reset your pass you need to provide the email address, you used to register. And it needs to be valid, because it is where your new pass will be sent to!

Cheers!

It does not annoy me anymore!

Originally this part was programmed for and machined in 6061 aluminum, but when production run came, material was changed to HRS and then to SPS (4140).

Luckily reprogramming using HSMAdvisor hook for MasterCAM is a bliss.

Mere 5 minutes and all speeds, feeds, depths of cut, etc. were changed to safe and productive values.

Turner - Modeler

February 27, 2016, 1:06 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Being a professional CNC Machinist myself with a good manual background I often find myself watching various machining videos and blogs.

Unlike others I do not often share somebody-else's work, I could just not walk past this one and not tell everybody how great I think this is....

This story was posted on "Russian reddit" and here is the direct translation of the author's post:

Quote:
We have a mechanic/installer at our work. He used to be a lathe machinist on a previous job and had a hobby - created a model copy of KrAZ-255B military truck. Right now he does not have time to work on it but is planning to return to it once he has more time on his hands.

Here is the mid-way result of his....art!

Lets begin with tyres. Vladimir (guy's name) decided to create the mould to make the rubber tyres himself. Here it is:

Here are the tyres he made with it. Beautiful aren't they?

He also made little differentials. Housings, gears. Everything made himself:
