HSMAdvisor v0.862

The most work on floating license scheme is finished and volunteers have begun testing it.

Licensing like that requires a lot of work on both the web side AND the client side. So a lot of things can go wrong and hopefully testing exposes all of the possible problems before a paying customer has the opportunity to face any.

Aside from cleanup here and there i have added the material search feature.

"Material" panel is now expandable and it is hiding a search field.
When you type anything into that field, material list right above will filter out items that contain the text being searched.
To clear search results user can just click the red x button to the right of the search field.

Here is how it looks:

You don't really need to click on the magnifying glass button as searing and selecting of material is done in real time as you type text.

In fact in many cases simply typing things like "D2" will select the material you need.

What's New:

  • Material Search Feature
  • Added several new machine profiles to the default machine list
    (When you install over existing installation, use machine import function to add them to your current machine list)
  • Finished floating license module (pending testing)

What's improved:

  • Added Aluminum 6061-T4 to materials list
  • Fixed missing Aluminum 6061-T6
  • Added floating pop-up box to pretty much all fields on the FSWizard screen
  • Cleaned up various things.

Whats new:

  • New "Reference" Tab now hosts all old Tap and Drill charts along with 2 new interactive Fastener Head Clearance tables (For SHCS and 82Deg FHS).
  • New additions to Aluminum, Copper, Stainless and Steel material groups.

Fixed:

  • Manufacturer Chipload loosing default value in metric mode condition fixed.
  • Improved Plugin Download workings in "Plugins" page. Now external links do not get broken. Also it works a lot faster too.

So, Let's see what new goodies we got here.

As you see i re-arranged some stuff around.
All data tables are now in "Reference" tab. and all geometric calculators are not in "Geometry" tab

First comes the Socket Head Cap Screws head dimensions, counter-bore and clearance hole sizes:

Next i added 82 Degree (imperial) Flat Head Screw reference table, complete with head, countersink and clearance sizes:

HSMAdvisor 0.840

Another week - another HSMAdvisor update!

Yesterday i uploaded a newer version. You can download it already.

Major change is only one: I have finally come around to implementing a Turning surface finish calculator.

After selecting any Turning Tool type, a "Scallop" button on Comp. panel will open a separate Turning Surface Finish dialog.

As usual you can change the units of measure by clicking "Units in/mm" label in top right corner.

Default units will be the units of chipload.

Also a corner radius is needed for calculator to work.

Changing Feed per Rev. or Corner Rad. values changes Surface Finish and Scallop and vise-verse

After you click "Apply", proper feed override is applied to the final result to get the surface finish you desire.

Aside from this new feature a couple of things got improved and fixed as well

  • First of all, i believe i have finally fixed a plagues that most of sofware running under Windows:
    Scaling issues under DPI greater than 96 were addressed and i think from this point on i should get much fewer reports about things being cropped off in wrong places.
    Still, if something looks odd on your system, please let me know!
  • A new "Stickout" column was added to the Tool Drop-Down List
  • Turning Cuts with mixed in/mm data saved in them used to have conversion issue.
    It has been fixed in this update.
  • Also collapsing panels that used to close when another panel is being opened now operate independently.
    Many people as it turns out like ot have ALL of the panels expanded at the same time.
