Bargain offer: 22% discount on all DeskProto
This year we are celebrating a double jubilee:
company Delft Spline Systems celebrates its 33th birthday,
and the program DeskProto is 22 years old. The
two images below tell you more about the old days. We will
celebrate both jubilees by offering 22% discount on all
DeskProto prices, for a period of 33 days. The discount action
starts on July 30, and will end on August 31,
2017: a total of 33 days.
The discount is available both via our

Delft Spline Systems started in 1984: 33 years
The image shows an IBM PC-XT, running the
Sipsurf CAD/CAM software that we then made, under MS-Dos. It
featured modeling and machining freeform NURBS surfaces, like the
ladies shoe that is shown. The color display was a very expensive
optional extra. As you can see CNC machining was already present.
The photo was in fact taken a few years later: the Roland CAMM3
PNC-3000 was released in 1986. It was the first desktop CNC milling
machine that came on the market.
DeskProto V 1.0 was released in 1995: 22 years
This screenshot shows DeskProto Version 1.0,

already present that still can be found in the current DeskProto.
Though it will also be clear that in these 22 years a lot of
progress has been made. The small image on the left shows the
printed manual and the floppy disk containing the complete

vacation souvenir !
After a great vacation on the island of La Palma
(one of the Canary Islands) we machined a relief model in
wood. It is a nice souvenir, on which
I can exactly show all walks that we made on this beautiful
island. Machining such relief model is very easy using DeskProto.
