Older versions

HSMAdvisor always supports the latest version of MasterCAM

Please check out the older (2018, 2017, and X9) versions here: HSMAdvisor v1.533


HSMAdvisor setup requires administrative privileges to install into Program Files.

Although it is not required, we recommend you to install standalone HSMAdvisor prior to installing the hook: this will make sure you have default tool libraries, machines, and languages.
