    Default New improved FSWiszard?

    There is a new version of FSWiszard out called HSMadvisor. http://hsmadvisor.com/index.php?page=Download

    Have any of you all tried it yet? It now includes turning. I have tried it for a few days and it seems to do what I need.

    I would be interested to read your thoughts. Being as I am not very experienced in machining I need all the help I can get at least with a jump off point regards feeds and speeds!

    I am glad it is working out for you.
    I did a quiet release a couple of days ago.
    There are many new things in there. Turning, thread milling, built-in tool database and such.
    I am more interested in things that it does not do.

    For this reason like i said before every update will bump up trial counter to 30 days.
    This way, i hope, users will feel compelled to suggest improvements and in return get to use my program for free. How is that for a deal?
    The next things in the pipeline are threading and tapping.

    Also if anyone is experiencing difficulties, i would love to help out.

    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 recognises that the rest of the world uses metric units.

    Keep up the good work.

    I can enter Max H.P. along with max speed and feed for my machine and get real numbers.

    You added some European steels to the materials list. Danke! I use C35 and C45 quite often.
