Delft Spline Systems has released a value-pack of DeskProto Lite licenses for schools, featuring 25 licenses for €395 (US $538). Using the DeskProto 3D CAM software and a desktop CNC milling machine, students can produce physical models of their CAD Designs.
DeskProto has been created as an extra tool for users with a different (non-CNC) profession. Like a designer needing a prototype, a jeweler needing a wax-model, a medic needing a brace. So it’s main selling point is ease-of use.
DeskProto can be combined with any desktop CNC milling machine. It can import STL files from any 3D CAD system, and can export NC program files suited for any 3-axis or 4-axis CNC milling machine. The full version features automatic feedrate reduction at high chiploads, collet collision check, full rotation axis support, and a two-sided milling wizard.
