Insole with offset toolpaths
Offset machining will save much time when machining custom insoles.

"We added the Offset strategy on request of many pedorthists, for machining custom insoles." says Lex Lennings, DeskProto sales manager. "Beta testing proved that the new strategy works great in many other application areas as well."

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.
