NEW FEATURES AND IMPROVEMENTS
•During tool selection, there is now a link in the “Tool Details” section which will direct you to that tool’s Tech Info page on our website. This allows you to check stock and pricing of the tool and find a local distributor to purchase.
•When exporting parameters to a PDF, user name and company name are now auto-populated on the report.
•Improved “Type-Ahead” search technology now allows users to find their tool or material more easily. For example, typing “H45” into the Tool section will bring up all “H45” tools, and typing “1018” into the Materials section will return “AISI 1018 – Plain Carbon Steel”.
Ratings and Reviews
Great alternative to using the desktop
Just as easy to use as the desktop version, perhaps faster, will report back after some more use
Great concept, poor execution
I think there is a lot of potential with this app... but I can tell the people who designed it are phenomenal machinist and not app developers. This app is extremely not user friendly. It is very laggy or stutters a lot when making a new selection. Once you’ve selected something it auto fills the parameters for you and only allows the user to adjust a few settings. Ex. I want to change the radial depth of cut, I can’t. I can only change the axial depth of cut or visa versa. Also with that if I attempt to change the percentage of whatever the setting is. Say from 100% engagement to 50% engagement the app freaks out when I delete the 100 and says 0 is not an acceptable amount. I understand it’s not an acceptable amount, but if you would have let me finish inputting what I wanted to input, and not kicked me out and reset it for me, it wouldn’t be 0. Lot of potential here but first needs a lot of refinement. Hope to see a change soon!

We would be happy top hop on a quick phone call to do some live troubleshooting with you.
The speed and feed are way too fast on uncommon materials.
Paid $250 for a tool that would have destroyed 321 stainless steel according to them. On the app it told me I should run it 215ipm which I thought was crazy for that material called in they said that a little face run it at 201ipm I still doubted it called their local application engineer he said ran it at 176ipm . I stared running it at 129ipm and the tool broke not even 1 min into cut . Called in they didn’t know what to say the application engineer came over to analyze it and he goes “seemed like our data was wrong, it should be closer to 100ipm” . They didn’t even replace the end mill $250 gone not even 1 minute of cut . I got a $100 kennametal tool and it ran for 2 days and a half at 100ipm . Long story short they really need to update their data so people can actually use it and they should at least stand behind their word and fix it not leave you hanging. Don’t overpromise and underdeliver .
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
