DeskProto Multi-Axis applications

The DeskProto Multi-Axis edition is meant for users needing more than three axes. Like modelmakers making complex models, jewelers needing a wax model, artists for a sculpture that needs to be machined from all sides, etc.

DeskProto can be combined with any 3D CAD program, and with any CNC milling machine.
Some examples of the extra options offered by this edition:


venus sculpture, 4-axis
Rotation axis machining: the model rotates during machining (Continuous rotation). The rotation axis (this device is also called fourth axis, or A-axis) looks like a barbecue spit.
silver jewelry
A rotation axis can also be used for "indexed machining": machine two or more sides, for each side using plain XYZ machining. In-between the sides the A-axis rotates the part. This is offered by DeskProto's wizard 'Two or more sides'.
complicated wax ring model
For rings (jewelry wax models) in many cases a combination of the above is used: Autoflip plus Rotary.
Austin Healey car model
This car model of an Austin Healey "Frogeye" has been machined from all sides by using Five-Axis machining. Even the undercut area round the pedals could be machined.

Functionality in DeskProto Multi-Axis

The Multi-Axis edition offer ALL options that are available in the Expert Edition.
So all Strategies shown on the Expert page are available as well, both for three-axis jobs and for indexed machining. The illustrations below shows the extra Strategies for continuous rotation.
