Dear John Smith,

We are happy to send you this next new issue of the DeskProto newsletter, about "CNC machining for non-machinists".  We hope that you will enjoy reading.

Win10 error message New build fixes the "corrupt-error" that keeps returning in Win10
The licensing software in DeskProto for many years has used the Windows ProductID to identify the PC. Unfortunately Windows 10 changes this ID every few months. After each change DeskProto will refuse to start, reporting "Your installation seems to be corrupt". This new build instead uses the ID of your PC's CPU, which fixes the problem.

DeskProto V7 splash screen DeskProto Version 7 developments
Work on the next DeskProto version is progressing, though it takes more time than we hoped. V7 will be a major upgrade, offering some great new features - that we will not yet reveal. We are very excited about V7 :-)
We never give expected release dates, all we can say now is that it will not be any soon: count on (far) more than 6 months.

Robot integrator Scara Industria de Maquinas Ltda in Brazil uses DeskProto to create toolpaths for CNC milling robots. They offer the SKR software to convert DeskProto G-code to robot path code. This nice video shows a Kuka KR5 robot arm machining a "Minion" character in foam.
You can find it on YouTube playlist Videos by DeskProto users >>

The resulting wooden doll Gallery: wooden "LEGO-doll"
This LEGO-style doll in wood has been created by Wood and Tools in the Netherlands. It has been CNC machined in four different types of wood, with 3D printed parts for the internal joints. As you can see an absolutely cute result !

The resulting chocolate bar Gallery: chocolate "Cow bar"
Using DeskProto it is easy to create molds for chocolate bars. What makes this bar special is the combination of 3D reliefs, 2D text and many colors. It is a one pound chocolate bar, made by The Chocolate Chisel in the USA. The cow stands for Wisconsin: America's Dairyland.
