New FSWizard for android is out!

October 8, 2013, 10:40 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

I have added Fillet Calculator to our android version.

It allsows to calculate tangent points on a circle and two lines.

All you need to specify is an angle beteen them and a radius.

Also lines intersection point can be moved around.

As a result it returns coordinates of the points and the centre of the circle.

Also tool data is now resetting to default when tool type is changed.

There is a new addition too.

HSMAdvisor is going commercial!

June 27, 2013, 11:55 am by Eldar Gerfanov

Hello gentlemen,

On September the 1st HSMAdvisor will turn one year old.

At that point 75$ for life deal will stop being offered.

Prices will go up.
New payment plans will be introduced.

Considered packages are:

  • Current Release Single Seat License (1 key): xxx$
  • Current Release Five Seat license (5 keys): xxx$ (30% savings)
  • Current Release Company-Wide License (Unlimited seats within company premises): xxx$

Program Upgrades (Upgrading from version 1.xx to version 2.0):

  • Single Seat License Upgrade: xx$
  • Five Seat license Upgrade: xxx$
  • Company-Wide License Upgrade: xxx$

 

I am not exactly set on pricing right now, so i can not say just how much things will cost.
I can only promise that pricing will continue being more than reasonable and very competitive.

Until September i will release several updates, but I will no longer offer trial extensions after September the 1st.

Announced changes will only affect commercial HSMAdvisor.

Free Online FSWizard will remain free for everyone.

 


HSMAdvisor 0.201 Update has been released.

May 26, 2013, 8:50 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

This is a bug fix release.

Because of amount of new features that was added to the front and back end in the previous version some bugs have crawled in.

Bugs fixed in this update

  • Fixed the behaviour of Manufacturer Settings- Speed and Chipload

  • Fixed Slotting Checkbox getting stuck when it was supposed to be unchecked

  • Fixed Edit Tool and Edit Cut dialogs that did not update changed data properly

  • Click on DOC label in turning mode now resets DOC to default

  • Removed the nag screen that appears after 15 days of usage - was never inteded to be there

Again thanks to everybody sending their bug reports and suggestions to me.

Without you my job would have been much harder.


    HSMAdvisor 0.200 Is available for download

    May 12, 2013, 11:10 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

    This HSMAdvisor v0.200 release is a major step forward.

    Aside from major rewrites that i did to improve stability of the code there are also new features that will improve user experience 
    and move us one step ahead towards making it the best tool for machinists. 

    New Features

    • Circular Interpolation feedrate compensation
      Now you can get compensated feedrates for milling inside and outside round features.
    • HSM and Chip Thinning 
      are now two separate check boxes.
      Chip thinning allows to compensate for thinning chip thickness at low radial and axial engagements.
      HSM allows to increase cutting speed when chip thinning occurs. 
    • Manufacturer's Speed and Chipload input
      For when you need to enter manufacturer recommended S&F values.
    • .NET 2.0 Framework 
      Starting from this release i have downgraded required framework version from 4.0 to 2.0
      This will allow us to target wider audience as it immediately drops requirements for Windows computers.
    • UNEF and UNS threads
      New thread sizes were added into the Threading section. 
    • Drill Chart 
      was expanded to drills up to 1.5" in diameter

    Bugs Fixed

    All the existing bugs were tackled when code re-write happened.
    I took a long time testing and fixing all of the problem and suspect areas, so at this poing it should be bug-free.

    FSWizard:Mobile update

    April 24, 2013, 7:27 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

    Hello,

    I have finally updated the looks of our mobile version.

    It now should be easier to read and use.

    Take it for a spin on your iPhone or android device!


    new mobile version fswizmobile.JPG

    HSMAdvisor v0.101 (FIXED)

    April 14, 2013, 10:34 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

    HSMAdvisor v0.1 is now available.

    (newest version is 0.101)

    A decision has been made that updates containing new features will increment by 0.1 each time

    Bug fix updates and improvement updates will increment by 0.01

    This should be a hint that first fully commercial release is in sight. (you still have another 6 months or so of free updates).

    There is only one major feature

    • Machinery with gear boxes is now supported- users can enter a list of RPM machine can have set and FSWizard will force all calculations to stick to those pre-defined numbers.
      There is a sample machine called "Manual Lathe" that demonstrates this feature. You can use "Import" function in Machine Definitions dialog to load that machine and see how it works

    Several bugs have been fixed

    • Manually entered RPM for lathe tools have been fixed
    • Minimum RPM entered in Machine Definitions dialog now actually forces FSWizard to not go below that value and generate a warning.

     

    How Sticky RPM works:

    • Create new machine in Machine Definitions by clicking Add button and giving it a name you would recoginze.
    • Fill up all of the input boxes including Min and Max RPM, Horse Power and Torque.
    • Enter list of RPM values your machine supports into the Power Curve table.
      (Note RPM values HAVE to be in incremental order)
    • Against each RPM row enter the max Horesepower your machine has (because its a gear-box, machine HP value is constant at any spindle speed)
      Tip: if Max torque was unknown, now you can enter the highest value you see in Torque row.
    • Check Calculations Stick to pre-defined RPM only check box (Yes i know the picture shows that box unchecked, but you have to CHECK it)
    • Check Use Horse Power Curve Compensation check box

    Thats it!

    Now FSWizard will force calculated RPM to match the closest RPM value from the table.

    HSMAdvisor 0.023 Has been released

    April 7, 2013, 10:26 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

    This release is a major step forward.
    We are starting to wander away from just Speeds and Feeds calculator part of the project.

    Version 0.022 was a little buggy.

    All reported and known bugs have been fixed.

    New update version is 0.023

    New features:

    • Threads page: You can now get thread cutting and tapping data for most popular threads in north America (UNC/UNF/ISO).
      The list of supported threads and features will grow according to necessity and user feedback.
    • Machine Profiles now have 2 new buttons: Clone and Import.
      Clone button simply copies selected machine definition with a different name.
      Import button is needed to be able to update/add machine definitions from default machine list. As users modify and customize their Machine List, thay are now able to add machine definitions hassle-free from default_machines.xml file that is supplied with every update.

    Bugs Fixed:

    • Sticky Ball nose check box

    • Max HP improperly rounded

    Additions:

    • Thanks to Greg Jackson and Matt Doeppers from Tormach i was able to create Horse Power/RPM curves for Tormach PCNC770 and PCNC1100 models (if you install over previous version, you can use import function to add those machines to the list)
