With G-Wizard Calculator version 3.45, we now have support for Corner Rounding End Mills:

Corner Rounding End Mills: New Cutter Type

Corner Rounding Endmills are super-easy to use.  Just select them as a geometry type from the basic Endmill tool.  Be sure to enter the flute length (which is also the arc radius).  That’s all there is to it.  You can let G-Wizard take the Feeds and Speeds from there.

There’s several other worthwhile changes in v3.45:

  • Cut Optimizer is 3-5x faster
  • Made toolcrib.csv import more robust for those who are tinkering with it in spreadsheets
  • Refined Feeds and Speeds for composites, chamfer bits, and some plastics which were reclassified from hard to soft per Onsrud’s practice.

If you’re ever in doubt about what’s changed in a release, our change logs for all our products are online and always up to date.  Click the “Help” button near the top of most CNCCookbook web pages, go to the “Getting Started” link for the desired product, and you’ll find a Change Log link in the long list of resource links for the product that appears on the left side of the Getting Started page.

Here’s the Change Log for G-Wizard Calculator, for example.  As you can see, we are constantly improving all our products.  It’s what keeps us the innovation leader, and most of the improvements come via suggestions from you, our readers and customers.

If you’ve never tried G-Wizard Calculator, give it a spin–take a free 30-day trial on us.  You’ll be surprised at all the many useful features to be found there.  And here’s the best part:

Even if you don’t need or want an awesome Feeds and Speeds Calculator.  Even if you never spend a dime with us.  You’ll still get lifetime access to a huge assortment of free machining calculators built into the software.  Most of them are described on our Calculator and Reference page.
