You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Import option for Fusion360 tool library

    Fusion360 can export a tool libary - it would be great to be able to import this into gwiz crib.

    • Real Time Feed rate

      Hello Bob, Nice software :-) Running the trial now but some things are confusing. The simulation doesn't seem to follow a change of feedrate. Is this intended or a bug? The custom Wizard

      • labels for columns and add another hardness column

        for the materials the column for hardness does not specify to which scale. I am assuming this column is brinell???

        would be very nice to have an additional column for Rockwell hardness scale

          • More accurate tool preview images

            There are 13 different main types of tool that you can choose from in G-Wizard, yet there are only 3 different preview images. While I understand that many of these tools (and the way that G-Wizard handles their geometry) are effectively the same, having the Indexable Drill, Spot Drill, Center Drill, Spade Drill, Reamer, Tap, Thread Mill, Boring Bar, and Saw all use the End Mill image is just strange. Maybe I am just a more visual person, but I find it very helpful to have at least a reasonably accurate representation of the tool I am defining.

                • Tool family - ability to create a quick access list

                  This idea assumes that the tool family database will expand and eventually come with a huge selection of tooling similar to how the material database has expanded.

                  I will post the same suggestion I had for the materials - allow the user to browse/search the massive database and set what tool families they use. These should then be accessible from a quick drop down list on the main calculator interface.

                      • Shapeoko 3 with Makita RT0700C

                        Hi, I'd like to have the machine profile for this particular setup. It is taking a while to get all of the information from different sources and to refresh my brain on physics 101 (HP->KW, etc.). Ideally, it would be available for all G-Wizard Calculator folks (and your other great offerings). This Makita Router is slightly different than the Dewalt, Porter, or Bosch router options. I have some guidelines from the Manufacturer of the Shapeoko 3 (Carbide 3D), but there are still many blanks to fill in to complete the machine profile. Thanks!

                        • Threadmilling added to Conversational Wizards

                          Enable threadmilling to Conversational CNC

                          Threadmilling is greyed out - it appears to be a future update, but is not currently supported. It'd be nice not to have to CAD/CAM something simple just to thread a hole I don't have the right tap for.

                          • conversion to convert IPM to degrees for rotary machining such as a C axis on a lathe

                            I would like to see a simple quick input that you can specify a diameter of a bar you are machining and then input the feed that your tool needs to move (IPM) then have a result which would than be the amount of Degrees per minute you need to turn the C axis rotation to get that amount of IPM. Here is the formula but I don't like to rerun it every time. IPM*360/circumference=Degrees per minute
