DeskProto ® goes multilingual: now also in French and Italian.

For immediate release, Nov 2012.

Utrecht (the Netherlands) -- Nov 15, 2012 -- Delft Spline Systems released French and Italian versions of it’s DeskProto 3D CAM software. DeskProto offers 3D CNC machining for non-machinists, and now is available in six languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

3D modeling on the computer is becoming mainstream technology, followed by the wish to create real parts. This can be done both by 3D printing (additive) and by CNC machining (subtractive). DeskProto uses CNC machining, which allows any material, any size and any accuracy. Typical users are product designers for Rapid Prototyping, jewelers for wax models, toolmakers for molds, artists, medics, woodworkers and many others: see the examples on The new Maker movement has also inspired many hobbyist users to start using CNC technology.

"Learning about a new technology like CNC machining is easier in your own language." says Lex Lennings, DeskProto sales manager. "And since we address inexperienced users, these translations are important to reach clients who otherwise could not achieve 3D CNC machining."

In order to also get support in one of these languages it will be needed to obtain DeskProto from your local reseller, as listed on the website.

About DeskProto

DeskProto by Delft Spline Systems is the 3D CAM program that has made CNC milling a competitive technology for Rapid Prototyping. The software can import STL files from any 3D CAD system, and can export NC program files suited for any 3/4/5-axis CNC milling machine. 2D CAM and bitmap machining are possible as well. Key feature is the ease of use: DeskProto is aimed at designers, not (as most other CAM software) at CAM specialists.
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, the two-sided milling wizard, and much more (not all options are available in the Lite edition). Current users range from one-person design and model shops to multinational A-brand companies like Unilever, Lancôme, Sony-Ericsson and NASA.
