Hi All,

Anyone else using this?

I've had it for quite a few years now. The latest editions (Your forced to upgrade via Adobe AIM platform, which it's written on) are giving me some way too fast feed and speeds. I've broken a few cutters. Lots of bugs in the interface, etc.

It used to work well, but lately with the small cutters I'm running there are way too many things that don't give good results. I've basically gotten to the point where I don't trust it anymore. When I attempt to address the issues, I always seem to get blown off by the author when trying to get answers.

For example, choosing 440C as a material defaults to 412 SFM, where Harvey tool recommends 150 SFM. Of course the 413 is waaaayyy too fast. It tried to tell me to slot at full width with a 1/8" carbide .750 inches deep in 440C earlier tonight!!!

Deflection calculation was nice, but it's all screwed up now. Every version changes things and add bugs.

Anyone else using it, if so anyone seeing similar issues?

Thanks,
Dan
