PRLog - Sep. 13, 2012 - UTRECHT, Netherlands -- Most Makers are now using digital fabrication technologies to create hot new products: manufacturing based on 3D computer data. Using a CNC milling machine this can be done in any material, making such machine a perfect tool for Makers. This will be shown at this year’s World Maker Faire, where machine builder ShopBot Tools (USA) and software builder Delft Spline Systems (NL) will demonstrate the ShopBot Desktop machine combined with the DeskProto 3D CAM software.

“We are positioning the ShopBot Desktop as a platform for all kinds of digital fabrication capabilities.” says Ted Hall, Founder and CEO of ShopBot. “The response to the Desktop has been great, from hobbyists, to small and mid-size business owners, to educators". New on the ShopBot Desktop is the Rotary Indexing Tool add-on, making it possible to machine a part from all sides.

The DeskProto CAM software combines well with this machine to be used by Makers, as DeskProto is very easy to use (it is aimed at “3D CNC machining for non-machinists”). DeskProto offers various options for rotation axis machining: both continuous rotation and ‘indexed machining’, meaning automatically machining from several sides, are possible.

"We are very glad with ShopBot’s invitation to show DeskProto at their booth” says Lex Lennings, DeskProto sales manager. "We will bring some great rotary parts, made in wood, and we can show how easy it is to create these”. For hobbyist users DeskProto is available at a special low price: perfect for Makers. A free trial version (fully functional) can be downloaded at deskproto.com.

About DeskProto:
DeskProto by Delft Spline Systems (the Netherlands) is the 3D CAM program that has made 3D CNC milling feasible for non-machinists. Key feature is the ease of use: DeskProto is aimed at designers, not (as most other CAM software) at CAM specialists. The software 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.
Despite its low-end price DeskProto contains many high-end features, like automatic feedrate reduction at high chiploads, collet collision check, full rotation axis support, and the two-sided milling wizard.
