Editors Pick of the Week in Desktop Engineering 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 menu choice 'Tips & Tricks' 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  Tips and Tricks >>

Carving sculptured table legs in wood 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'.
