DP screenshot New DpPictureFrame.stl sample geometry
Not only the software is new, the free sample files that come with DeskProto have been updated too. A very nice sample is the DpPictureFrame geometry: an ornamented photo frame that has been modelled for DeskProto users and is present in every trial download. Machine a frame in wood, to make a special gift...
The geometry is used in Lesson 1 of the new V6 Tutorial >>, a training video will follow next year.

Gallery picture Great five-axis Gallery project, including video
The latest gallery project has been created using a Version 6 Beta build.
It shows the creation of a classic car model: the Austin Healey Sprite (1960), nicknamed Frogeye. Special is the use of Five-Axis machining, to reach areas that otherwise could not have been machined. The page includes a cool video to show the five-axis machine while making this model in wood.
View the Austin Healey Gallery page >>

Try for yourself and download the DeskProto trial version from our website.
To get started you can use the tutorials (both video and PDF) and the sample geometries.
This is all possible completely free of charge !

Best Regards,

Lex Lennings.
