HSMAdvisor v0.862

September 14, 2014, 5:12 pm by admin

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.

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 v0.822

July 12, 2014, 6:10 pm by admin

A latest update to HSMAdvisor is available right now in the downloads section!

The main new thing is ability to assign custom or Tool Manufacturer-recommended Speeds and Feeds to tools saved in the database.
Please refer to this tutorial for a detailed walk-through on how this can be accomplished.

Why have manufacturer-recommended speeds and feeds when my calculator already does pretty much the same thing?
Simply because cutter geometry and composition varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. And tools made by different companies often vary in quality and performance.

Even things like cutter material and coatings vary in hardness and toughness.

Aside from this major update, little bugs were fixed.

Fixed and Improved:

  • New "Speed and feed source" indicator disappearing problem solved.

  • Fixed limits for drilling, taping and turning.

  • changed layout for Reference Calculators
