Top Art School Selects DeskProto for Rapid Prototyping of Sculptures.

For immediate release, Jan 2001.

Utrecht (the Netherlands) -- Jan 28, 2001 -- Delft Spline Systems of the Netherlands today announced that the prestigious E.N.S.B.A. art school in Paris has selected DeskProto to introduce CAD/CAM technology and Rapid Prototyping in their sculpting education program.
The new system is a combination of the DeskProto 3D CAM software and a CPM 4030 desktop CNC milling machine, and will be employed by students to create physical sculptures based on their virtual designs.

"Our students are becoming more and more used to designing their sculptures and artefacts in 3D CAD," says Tony Brown, coordinator of the school's sculpture program, "however, for a real evaluation of the design physical models are absolutely needed".

The school has selected the DeskProto system because of its ease-of-use, and because the investment did fit within the very small budget available. Brown continues "We want the students to create their own models using this new system, without constant supervision. Our new system permits this as it is both easy and safe the machine can run only with its cover closed."
