Delft Spline Systems to preview DeskProto V 4.1 at Euromold 2005.

For immediate release, Nov 2005.

Utrecht (the Netherlands) -- Nov 1, 2005 -- Delft Spline Systems announced that it will preview DeskProto Version 4.1 at the 2005 Euromold show. The Euromold will be held from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3 in Frankfurt (Germany). Delft Spline Systems and German DeskProto distributor Filou GmbH will be present in Hall 6.0, stand A105.

The new Version 4.1 of the DeskProto software for Subtractive Rapid Prototyping will be released begin 2006, and contains many improvements. Most asked for by users is a new feature called the Freeform segment. This feature allows users to select any freeform area for machining. Especially for detailing operations it can save much time to exactly specify where machining is needed. A complete list of improvements will be published on the DeskProto website.

In addition, Delft Spline Systems will show hardware for Rapid Prototyping. Two desktop milling machines from competing manufacturers will be present: an Isel CPM from Germany and a Roland MDX-40 from Japan. Both machines combine very well with the DeskProto software.

"We are very proud that we can show both machines, as the stand is much larger than in previous years." says Lex Lennings, product manager for DeskProto. "Visitors now can compare the two machines that are most popular in Europe, and decide which machine will fit their application best."

The DeskProto CAM software is aimed at designers, not (as most other CAM software) at CAM specialists. Despite it's low-end price DeskProto includes 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. Current users range from one person design and models shops to multinational A-brand companies like Unilever, Lancôme, Sony-Ericsson and NASA.
