HSMWorks Breaks the Mold. By Corporal Willy December 2nd 2011 Really good things don’t happen all that often these days but today the news came out that I want everyone to know about especially those students out there. Heck this informational news break is so good that all users of SolidWorks should be made aware of it. How about a FREE CAM Solution for your SolidWorks program? Does that sound good and in keeping with the seasonal gift giving time of year? Well it is true. The HSMWorks is giving away their 32 bit and 64 bit CAM program that will embed flawlessly into your SolidWorks program. Talk about gift giving, this has to be the best thing I have heard of in many years. Having close friends in many different industries associated with various vendors did not give me or allow me any pre-published information about this. So it was a total surprise to me since I had no advanced notice about this. My contacts were sworn to secrecy. Rather than me telling you all about, it read this newsletter I got this email letter yesterday morning from Mr. Charles Davis of the HSMWorks Company. http://www.hsmworks.com/download/hsmxpress HSMWorks formerly announced the release of HSMXpress at the PRI show in Orlando, Florida.
This is not a gimmick. HSMXpress is not a stripped-down, demo or student version. It is what many consider is the best SolidWorks Integrated CAM available at any price. It is fully functional. It includes all 2D Milling toolpaths, including our powerful 2D Adaptive Clearing technology. It will simulate, post process and transmit G-code to your machine and includes the most common CNC machine post processors.
There are no unusual licensing restrictions on the use of HSMXpress. If you have SolidWorks and agree to a simple and sensible licensing agreement you can use HSMXPress commercially, privately or in an educational institute. Learn. Have fun. Make money.
Here are some specifics about HSMXpress:

Get HSMXPress Now Now I hope I haven’t lost you right now as you rush to the download web site and grab this unbelievable gift. http://www.hsmworks.com/download/hsmxpress Let me further add to this great news by letting you know about something that Mr. Albert Whatmough from the Inspirtech Company has that will make learning this marvelous CAM program as easy as possible. They have a video tutorial series for $249 dollars that will teach you what you need to know on how to use this program. This is all unbelievable and will rock the CAM industry for sure. But in times like this we need to celebrate the news of things that can add to your knowledge and overall expertise in Parametric Design and the Manufacturing end of things. After all, everything we design today, if it is worthwhile, needs to be made in the physical world. Therefore, SolidWorks which is a world class (Mechanical Computer Aided Design) program and the HSMWorks (Computer Aided Manufacturing) go hand in hand and completely complement one another. A truly great marriage here is what I am talking about. I congratulate both of these companies, one for eliminating the price of their basic CAM program and the other for keeping the video training tutorials with workbooks at very low prices indeed. I know these tutorials personally and they are so easy to understand at all levels of competence with the SolidWorks program. In a very short time you will know how to manufacture those parts and assemblies you design. Is this a good combo or not? Go to the Inspirtech web site to order your video tutorials if you want a shorter learning curve for the HSMXpress program: http://www.fundamentalsofcnc.com/
I have attached a PDF file for you to look at with pictures. Take care and Enjoy this Great Gift. This is Corporal Willy wishing everyone the best during this Holiday Season.
