Start Simple

The Estimate page captures the basic operations needed to make your part along with information about the customer and description. There’s also a handy quick report on Cycle Times, Costs, and Production Rates. Costs can be divided into Variable (per-part) and Fixed Costs (one-time). Think of Fixed Costs for things like the cost of creating fixtures for the job.


Add a Proven Feeds and Speeds Engine

Why wouldn’t you want to use the same Feeds and Speeds you’ll use to manufacture the part? G-Wizard Estimator uses the market-leading G-Wizard Calculator Feeds and Speeds engine applied to those features to estimate Real World cycle times for each feature.

These are the same tools with all the features found in our popular G-Wizard Calculator software, but enhanced for Cost Estimation.


Feature-Based Estimation Wizards: a gigantic timesaver

Estimation Wizards are available for all common Turning and Milling Operations. From just a few inputs, a full strategy is created for each operation including Tool Choice, Cut Depth, Cut Width, Feeds and Speeds, MRR, and so on.
