Select the Machine Definition you would like to edit from the drop-down list located on Machine Definitions window.

You can edit machine parameters to better suit your real-world needs.

Editing Machine Parameters

Set the parameters you know about your machine

The most important values are:

  • Maximum Spindle RPM
  • Maximum Spindle Power
  • Maximum Spindle Torque
  • Power Curve
    (leave empty in unknown)

To correctly get those values consult your machine's manufacturer

Other ones are not involved into actual calculations and are used to limit things:

  • Minimum RPM
  • Maximum Feedrate
  • Warning Percentage

Set Your Power Curve

If the machine builder supplied you with the Power Curve graphs for your spindle, you can map out your spindle and tell HSMAdvisor to respect this Power Curve when making calculations
