HSMAdvisor v1.407

New Goodies in HSMA v1.407!

  • Hardness conversion Chart in Reference tab
  • Improved CutCloud with ability to easily import selected tools and cuts into the local database.
    As this feature is becoming more robust, I also started adding useful cutting data to the cloud.


Eventually, I believe, it will become another hugely useful resource for all HSMAdvisor users!

HSMAdvisor v1.402

August 20, 2016, 11:52 pm by admin

Huge "Farewell to MasterCAM x9" HSMAdvisor Hook update has been released.

The MC 2017 has been out for a few month now and because it has received quite mixed reviews from the machinist's community, i decided to release one more big update to our MCx9 hook before starting to fully work on adapting it for MC 2017.

This update v1.402 is a double update. The hook version has now caught up to the standalone AND we have some new features in standalone HSMAdvisor as well.

Here is a quick video showcasing most of the new features:

What is new and improved in this HSMAdvisor update

  • New Hardened D2 and M2 Steels
  • New 17-4 and 13-8 Stainless Steels in various conditions
  • Mew DB Contents Tree in Select Tool Dialog
  • Plunge Speed Lock
  • New Free GD&T Reference Tab
  • Updated Look and functionality of Scientific Calculator
  • Updated look of all Geometry Calculators.

Whats new and improved in HSMAdvisor Hook:

  • Improved Toolpath import and export
  • New Improved Select Tool/Cut Dialog with Side Contents Tree
  • Plunge RPM lock for toolpaths, that do not support Plunge RPM different from the main RPM
  • Ability to choose which data is read and written into the toolpath.
  • Full ToolDB Functionality including editing and saving tools is now free.

As usual Here you can download the latest updates:

HSMAdvisor 1.400

New Licensing options!

  • From now on expired floating licenses do not stop working. We just limit your available Horse Power by the number of years in your subscription. If you had 1 year, then you will have 1HP power limit. etc
  • Expired Trial versions also do not stop working.
    You will be given ONE material option to work with and the rest of the functions will continue working as usual.

This means that from now on the access to Tool Database and Reference functions is completely free no matter whether you paid for our software or not!

This also means that Expired Floating licenses roll back to "Lite" mode where your machine power is limited by the number of years in your subscription.

A single 1 year subscription will buy you one year of unlimited use and then your machine power will be limited by whatever many years you have been subscribed for.
It will in fact work as a more expensive lifetime subscription!

Similarly a 3 year subscription will give you unlimited use for 3 years after which your power will be limited by 3 Horse Power.

In both cases You will also get all the updates and support that naturally comes with all paid options!

I believe this will be a great help for those running light underpowered machines like Tormach 770, Carbide 3d and such.


Let us know!
