HSMAdvisor 0.602

October 2, 2013, 10:18 pm by admin

This release is a bug fix for the error that happens in the previous version when SFM override is 0%

You can simply install this update over your existing installation.


HSMAdvisor v0.601 Release

September 24, 2013, 9:46 pm by admin

I have just uploaded a new release of HSMAdvisor.

I have decided to extend trials every time major releases come out.

This will happen every several months or so.

This release is pretty big. So every one who has not purchased yet gets 30 days more to play with it.

We have material cross-reference tool.

It allows you to quickly figure out material group for a large number of materials. Around 1000 of them.
You can access it by pressing "MORE" button next to material drop-down list.

Here is it looks:

Second Big thing is new tool life estimator.

It allows to show you how tool life reacts to changes in speed, feed rate and depth of cut.

It is a percentage based on normal shoulder milling cut that should equal 100%

Nobody else has this feature- it is absolutely unique to HSMAdvisor and that is in part why i decided to extend trials this time.

Besides tool life gage there is a new tab in results area.

It is called Gages.

It shows important information like what percentage of deflection, torque and machine load we are running at the moment.

It helps to figure out at a glance if something is out of whack.

As always feedback is welcome.


HSMAdvisor 0.500 has been released.

August 5, 2013, 9:04 pm by admin

HSMAdvisor version 0.5 has just become available on downloads page.

There are many improvements and fixes in there.

But the most noticable one is improved Circular Compensation Calculator.

 

Located on FSWizard page and only available for milling tools it allows to calculate with of cut by stock or pilot hole diameter.

Also helical angle calculator helps converting degrees to pitch and vise-verse.

Check it out!


HSMAdvisor 0.400 has been released.

July 15, 2013, 10:41 pm by admin

This is the last free update for HSMAdvisor.

Any further releases will not extend your trial counter anymore.

New things:

  • Plugins page.
    I have decided to include additional functionality in a form of HTML/javascript pugins.
    Nice thing is that it is going to use normal web-pages saved on user PC
    Basically you will be able of navigate a web-resource and simply save it inside a special folder for further offline use inside HSMAdvisor.

Bug fixed:

  • in/-mm conversion that affected drill depth as well as machine profiles has been fixed.
  • Export function should now work properly.
    By the way if you save your XML file as XLS  you will be able to open the exported database as an excel spread sheet.

 


HSMAdvisor v0.300 has been released

June 23, 2013, 2:05 am by admin

This release features some pretty major updates and features.

First of all, Tool deflection model has been radically improved over previous versions.
Now model fully considers not only the flute length, but also depth of cut and how it affects deflection!

No other speed and feed calculator alows you to do that.

Calculator now helps getting full advantage of those Hight Axial engagement toolpaths.

New things

  • HSMAdvisor can now print!
    For now you can print a screenshot of application window. Make sure to select "Album" layout in your printer settings, otherwise portion of the window may get cut off.
    Tool library printing is next in line to be done.
  • User Library Export and Import in XML format is now available.
    You can use it to back up your tool library and share library files with others.
  • Library Tabs are now right-clickable by mouse- this allows to right click on the library tab and select desired action like "Delete" "Merge" and "Rename".
  • Speeds for some tool and stainless steels have been revised.
    Couple of materials were added.

Things updated and improved

  • Improved tool deflection model.
  • Improved and fixed machine and tool limits trigering.
  • Creation of new Tool or Cut now forces newly-created tool/cut to get loaded, so you dont have to search it from the drop-down list- it becomes active right away.
  • Viewing and editing of tool/cut info in myCutDB page now does not close opened tool tree.
  • Tool material and Work Material are now a single column. Its called Tool&Work Material and it shows tool material for Tool rows and work material for Cut rows
