PRODUCTS: Comparison table

Comparison table shows a functionality overview of the three DeskProto Editions

The three DeskProto Editions compared

The DeskProto software is available in three different editions:
the DeskProto Entry Edition is the lowcost edition: all that is needed for basic CNC machining
the DeskProto Expert Edition includes all available features, however only for 3-axis machining
the DeskProto Multi-Axis Edition is the flagship edition: all features plus 4-axis and 5-axis machining

In order to decide which edition will suit your needs you can use the Comparison Table shown below.
Or you can of course use it to compare DeskProto with other CAM programs.
