Advanced Feed And Speed Calculator for CNC Programmers and Machinists.


 

HSMAdvisor allows to import and export machine definitions, thus allowing you to use third-party definitions and share your custom ones with other HSMAdvisor seats.

Here is how you can Import and Export a machine definition:

To Import a new machine in to the active machine list

  • Click on Edit button next to the Machine list on HSMAdvisor Speeds and Feeds tab
  • Click on Import button on the "Machine Definition" dialog
  • A standard windows "Open File" dialog appears prompting you to select a file that contains the machine you wish to import.
  • After selecting a file and pressing OK, you will be asked to choose which machine you would like to import from the file. This is necessary because each file may contain many definitions.
  • Find and select your machine in the drop-down list to make sure its parameters are correct.
  • Click on Save button to save the changes and close the dialog

To Export a machine or many to an outside file

(to share it with your friends, coworkers, or maybe even me)

  • Click on Edit button next to the Machine list on HSMAdvisor Speeds and Feeds tab
  • Click on Export button on the "Machine Definition" dialog
  • A dialog appears where you are prompted to choose which machines from your current list you would like to export.
  • After selecting your machines, click OK and select a file name where you would like to save your machine list.
