Dear John Smith,
We are happy to send you this next issue of the DeskProto newsletter,
about "CNC machining for non-machinists". We hope
that you will enjoy reading.
DeskProto selected as Editor's "Pick of the Week".
One of the major Design Engineering technology news sources
in the USA is Desktop
Engineering (publishing via a magazine, websites and
email newsletters). So we were delighted to hear that editor Anthony
J. Lockwood selected DeskProto as his "Pick of the
Week" for week 48. He picks the products he thinks will
help you do your job better, smarter and faster: of course we cannot
but agree with him on this pick !

New DeskProto website page: Tips & Tricks.
Some support issues will come up frequently however are not
really suited for the FAQ as they require an in-depth explanation.
We have added a new support page for these issues, called "Tips
and Tricks". Currently tips are available on CAD programs
(MOI and Rhino), on machines
(Gerber, Magic 7 and
Roland), and on using DeskProto (Rotation
axis tricks). More tips will follow.
See website page
and Tricks >>

Gallery: Carving sculptured table legs in wood.
Woodworking is a great application for DeskProto, either
professionally or as a hobby. This Gallery story shows DeskProto
being used to create sculptured table legs: for a custom table with
a unique design. This is a great example of what can be achieved
using DeskProto on a machine with a rotation axis
(indexer). On a smaller scale you do the same and produce 3D pen 'turnings'.
