Sounds like they got the message. Better late than never I guess. They say sells are up but I don’t know how they can possibly sell this product in the state that it currently is in. We’ll have to wait and see how much has really changed. I’m hoping for a customizable interface to fit each user’s needs.
“New Tools and Material Database Engine”
I’m really wondering what they have done here. Some of the speeds and feeds are a little out of whack with reality. One thing I’d like to see is feeds/speeds calculated in a way they don’t exceed the maximum RPM of the spindle(s) your working with. This is a real PIA if the tool isn’t saved for that particular type of operation. For example, If your cutting soft materials with carbide tooling on a machine with a max RPM of 8,000 all the time you would have to save every tool in the library for each type of operation. Otherwise you’re constantly changing speeds/feeds in the operation manager.
