Here are some quotes by users of HSMAdvisor and FSWizard taken from various online CNC machining related resources.

I am getting many more letters with suggestions and thanks, but i do not feel like publishing them as they might have been intended as private correspondence.

Keep your suggestions coming on our forums located at and by email (see contact page)

Thanks everybody for your references and support.

We purchased the HSMAdvisor, set up our HP and torque specs, and successfully launched a new strategy for roughing and semi-finishing small parts on these machines.

Have you tried the calculator yet? Free 30 day trial...and worth every penny after. Definity changed the way I program.

Yeah zero 15 HP aint much thata why I finally convinced my boss to try out HSM. More SFM and more MRR. He comes from manual machining doing old school theory of really large DOC and slower feed rate. Something you just can't do on 15HP. So he was skeptical all the way up and till I showed him what it could do. By the way zero love the calculator its amazing. Best one I have found. I won't lie though I was scared out of my wits when i let thay thing loose. Haha.

Best thing you can do is buy good, American-made HSS tools, and use a good feeds and speed calculator - like FSWizard or HSMAdvisor (Google them) - to set your feeds and speeds.

Been quietly using this for a few weeks and find that the figures given are very good to actual cutting data.
One thing where this excels is that most commercial programs spit figures out that bear no relation to the machine it's on.
OK for industry who has 3,678 HP on tap [ approx ] but if you only have an X2 mill with 500W on tap then it's a different ball game.
Also like the fact that it also recognizes that the rest of the world uses metric units.

Keep up the good work.

HSM Advisor and FS Wizard are opposite sides of the same coin.  FSWizard is web based and free to use, and HSM Advisor is standalone PC based but costs.  I have found that FS Wizard is quite good, but very aggressive.  If you put in all the setup data it asks for, use coolant or lubricant  when you should, and have a fairly rigid machine you can make all the cuts it calculates.  Its also got a pretty decent material database built in and calculates for different tools, geometry, coatings, and even machining types like milling, drilling, and turning. 

I've also found zero-divide (the author of FS Wizard and HSM Advisor) is quite easy to work with.  He also has a free and a paid version of FS Wizard for the Android Market.  When I am doing a quick simple job using the Mach 3 Wizards I'll often double check my numbers using the FS Wizard cell ap rather than walk in the office and use the CAD/CAM computer.  I've got 4 FS aps on my cell phone, but FS Wizard is the only one I use anymore.

just get a copy of zero devices software. I am in China now and the company I am working for has 14 copies and they live by the feed and speed it outputs

I have decided to keep the sale on HSMAdvisor until November 11.

This should give everybody just enough time to make up their mind.


The sale has been extended until November 13 th.

I have received not one but two letters asking me what happened to the sale prices and why it ended so soon.....

Well, you guys have 2 more days to decide!

HSMAdvisor 0.610 Has just been released

November 2, 2013, 5:34 pm by admin

In this release I have added CAD/CAM integration.

Please read the latest tutorial in HSMAdvisor Tutorials section here
This is a pretty Unique way of doing it.

It is still in the beta-mode.
But it is fully functional. I have tested it on MasterCAM and SurfCAM with great results.
While some functionality is not supported well on all cadcam packages, it is still much better than nothing.

Please send me your feedback on how it works with your CADCAM package.

I have also added a list of recently used materials.

Now material list will have 6 recently used items at the very top of it.
Later on i will allow user to enter whatever number of recent items he wants to see there. But for now its just 6.

New Computer ID and New License keys

Starting from this release i have changed how Computer ID keys are generated.
This was done to fix problems some of the users experienced when they added or removed additional hardware on their computers.

New Computer ID's mean License keys have been changed for all users as well.
Not to worry though, License keys will be automatically updated for all of our users, so no action from their side is required.

If you have active license. You will get a message telling you what happened and your license file will be updated automatically.

Some bugs got fixed as well.

All of them were pretty minor, nothing to write home about.

Material definitions got updated as well.

Added several materials, updated speeds and feeds for tool steels and stainless steels.

I still have to add some of the previously requested materials (like Weldox Graphite, etc) to the list.
And i am planning to add it in the next release.

Chiploads for micro-milling were changed as well.

Chiploads for micro-endmills (below 1/16 dia) were reduced significantly.
