The Power of Ideas

This forum is for submitting ideas for our G-Wizard Software and Voting on them.

How can we improve our G-Wizard software? (Please tell us which package)

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".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • I could really use a Solid Surface as a choice of material in Calculator

      I've been working with Solid Surface materials for a few months and used a cheetsheet my predecessor made (apparantly him not being not that great got me his job). So I wondered, if there was a chance i could improve upon his work. I think your software could seriously negate a lot of issues I'm having. Trouble is, you dont have Solid Surface in your material list.

      • Add effect of measured spindle runout on calculated feed and speed.

        If I know the spindle runout it would be nice if calculator had an option to input that value and take it into account for all calculations. It could compute the best combination of speed and feed to maximize chances of success. It is especially useful for users with smaller CNC routers like Shapeoko.

          • Add 'O' Flute Bit Type

            An example of this bit is an Amana Tool 51408. This specific bit is used for cutting aluminum. In the meantime, it would be nice to know if I can substitute a different bit type to achieve similar results from GWizard.

            • CADCAM tab doesn't take into consideration the RPM your spindle is capable of.

              In the pocket tab of CADCAM it suggests using a certain tool at an RPM my machine cannot go down to. (Shapeoko3 DWP611 in my case)
              its telling me to go at 12000 RPM.. my machine only goes down to 16000RPM min.

              • provide a sample part with various radii along with a g-code solution

                providing a sample part page containing various radii along with a g-code solution would help reduce programming time by providing a quick reference that can be immediately accessed in editor. It also would be a great sales tool. You would be the only one providing this real world information.

                          • Add an 82 degree toggle drop down for center drill depth calculator

                            Currently the software assumes that you are using a 60 degree center drill. It would be very helpful to be able to quickly switch between 60 and 82 degree center drills when countersinking screw heads with an 82 degree head.

                              • User Machine List

                                Be able to have a short list of machines that hide all the other machine profiles other than the ones that the user actually has.

                                Ex, I have 3 VMCs, 1 Lathe all by different manufacturers.

                                It is time consuming to scroll through the list to find those machines.

                                Any current workaround until such functionality is added?

                                    • Feeds and Speeds - Dovetail Cutters

                                      It would be quite handy to have a dovetail cutter option under Tool, in the Feeds/Speeds section.

                                      Love the product, keep up the great work!

                                      • Selectable RPM's for geared head speeds on Mills and Lathes in G-Wizard Machinists Calculator

                                        I run a Geared Head Warco 10-24 from c.1984, she's a good little precision machine, with a 2 speed motor and 9 gears, I would prefer to be able to assign a fixed N° of gears (In my case 18) and be able to assign a speed to each (e.g. 45, 90, etc,etc, 1520, 3000rpm's)

                                        Then when I am running speeds and feeds calculations in that machines profile a simple Java option on screen to show "Optimum RPM" or "Users Machine Nearest Available RPM"

                                        From this, I would then expect to see recommended mm/rev or mm/min for mills.

                                        May not…

                                        • Move the share bar for facebook, twitter, etc.

                                          The moving menu bar for sharing facebook, twitter, etc., blocks vertical your menus, requiring one to vertically scroll more than needed. It would be best located somewhere else.
