Rhino logo CAD-integration 1: complete automation in Rhino.
For some applications it is nice to completely hide the DeskProto user-interface, allowing any untrained user to generate flawless toolpaths. DeskProto allows such complete automation, using it's default parameters.
In Rhino you can add one button to execute this complete process. When manufacturing series of a product with minor variations this can save you lots of time !

MOI logo CAD-integration 2: start DeskProto from MoI.
MoI stands for Moment of Inspiration, a relatively new 3D CAD program. We have heard positive comments, have been asked about starting DeskProto from MoI, and have found that it is easy to add a DeskProto button to MoI.
We published our findings on the DeskProto forum.
