## First Time Setup

How to get started fast when you first install G-Wizard:

## G-Wizard Calculator Walkthrough

A little deeper walkthrough of the screen elements, how to navigate, what apps are present, and how to set up your Machine Profile so you can get started with G-Wizard Calculator.

## More on Setup

How to set up your spindle power curves to compensate for power changes versus rpm or to compensate for lack of rigidity on small machines.

## A Quick Course in Feeds and Speeds

Wondering what G-Wizard can do for you or why Feeds and Speeds formulas aren’t enough? No worries, this video provides a quick and painless introduction to the theory so you can get the most out of G-Wizard so you can understand some of the trade-offs it is making and know more about what it’s trying to tell you. Want more theory? Check out our free in-depth Feeds and Speeds Cookbook. It covers everything from basic concepts like Surface Speed to advanced topics like eliminating chatter.

## Feeds and Speeds for Milling Machines

Introduction to Feeds and Speeds for Milling Machines. Covers all the basics of how to use G-Wizard Calculator’s Feeds and Speeds app for Milling Machines. Topics include searching the Materials Database, Tool Selection, Tool Geometry, Stickout, Deflection, Climb vs Conventional Milling, and more.

## Feeds and Speeds for CNC Routers

Please watch the video “Feeds and Speeds for Milling Machines” above first. This video adds information specific to CNC Routers that assumes you’re familiar with the basics from the milling video.

Introduction to Feeds and Speeds for CNC Routers. Covers all the basics of how to use G-Wizard Calculator’s Feeds and Speeds app for CNC Routers. Topics include cutting materials like aluminum, how to deal with not being able to run spindle RPM’s or feedrates slowly enough, CNC Router cutter types, and more.

## Feeds and Speeds for Turning and Lathes

Introduction to Feeds and Speeds for Turning and Lathes. Covers all the basics of how to use G-Wizard Calculator’s Feeds and Speeds app for Milling Machines. Topics include searching the Materials Database, Tool Selection, Insert Geometry, Cut Depth, Surface Finish Calculator, and more.

## Calculate Your Cut Depths and Cut Widths with Cut Optimizer

How do you decide your Cut Width and Cut Depth for CNC machining? It can be purely guesswork unless you have a tool like G-Wizard which can actually find optimal values for these important cutting parameters. Using Cut Optimizer, you can find the optimal Cut Depth or Cut Width while holding the other constant.

How can I easily answer all the questions my CAM software needs to know to cut a part? It needs to know choice of tool, cut width, cut depth, feeds, and speeds for both roughing and finishing. And how do I make sure I am giving the best possible answers to the CAM program for those questions?
