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.

Download a free Elevation Dataset and machine a relief of your hometown. Machine a relief model of your USA hometown
The latest gallery project shows how you can use DeskProto to create a detailed relief model of any area in the USA ! Digital Elevation Data is available via the USDA Geospatial Data Gateway, completely free of charge. These elevation data bitmaps can be imported in a DeskProto bitmap operation to create toolpaths. Read how to do this on Gallery page USA relief models >> which shows a detailed scale model of San Francisco and the Golden Gate.
More details and a video are planned - follow this via Facebook >>

Flags for various languages DeskProto now also in French and in Italian !
Earlier this month we have released French and Italian versions of the DeskProto software. DeskProto now is available in six languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
Trial versions are available at >>
and >>
Only the program has been translated, and for French the Tutorial: the other manuals and the help file still are in English.
For current users (DP V6) the translated versions are free updates.

DeskProto tile in Win 8 DeskProto V6 runs OK in Windows 8
Last month Microsoft released Windows 8, and of course we have tested DeskProto on this new version of Windows. This proved to work fine, just as with the Win8 pre-release :-)
See the screenshot on the DeskProto forum >>,
showing the tile for DeskProto V6 in the new tiled Win 8 user interface.
Older DeskProto versions will start as well, however may come with graphics issues, and may give problems when working with the libraries.
