Delft Spline Systems to show easy Desktop Prototyping at Euromold 2006.

For immediate release, Oct 2006.

Utrecht (the Netherlands) -- Oct 13, 2006 -- Delft Spline Systems announced that it will show Desktop Prototyping at the 2006 Euromold show, using the DeskProto software and a desktop CNC milling machine. The Euromold will be held from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2 in Frankfurt (Germany). Delft Spline Systems and German DeskProto distributor Filou GmbH will be present in Hall 8.0, stand B123.

The DeskProto software for Subtractive Rapid Prototyping makes it possible for any 3D designer to create prototypes in-house using an affordable desktop milling machine. How easy RP can be may be illustrated by the youngest DeskProto users: students at Peace Lutheran College in Australia. Aged 11 to 13 year they already produce both 3D CAD models and prototypes, though for them the prototype will be the final product. Also see
Visit the DeskProto stand to see how easy and affordable RP can be.

"We are very proud that these young kids actually use our software to create models." says Lex Lennings, product manager for DeskProto. "This application truly supports our claim that DeskProto is easy to use."

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

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.

About DeskProto

DeskProto by Delft Spline Systems is the 3D CAM program that has made CNC milling a competing 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-axis or 4-axis CNC milling machine. Key features are the ease of use (the software is aimed at designers, not at CAM specialists) and the low price.
