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.
Beta testing of DeskProto V6 has started.
This new version contains exciting new features. A few highlights:
+ Multithreaded toolpath calculations, making DeskProto even faster
+ Completely new wizards, including roughing and finishing
+ No admin rights needed (so no UAC warnings), and Aero compatible
+ Faster graphics and faster file loading.
Email us when you want to join beta testing (registered users only).
Buy a DeskProto license now and receive a free update to V6 when it's ready.
New Service Release (bugfix build) for DeskProto V 5.0
Since the last bugfix build again a number of new bugs has
been reported (thanks for your input) and fixed. So it was time for
new build, which has been made available on Aug 22.
Users of a DeskProto V5.0 Full license can use the
Updater to install the new version, users of
DeskProto V5.0 Lite can just install a fresh Lite
trial version, as that will recognize their current license
information. These bugfix upgrades are free of charge.
A list of the improvements and a link to the Updater can be found on the
DeskProto Build history page >>
Visit us at the 3D Printing Event
3D printing is hot ! Many new initiatives stimulate the home use of 3D CAD:
free 3D CAD software like Google SketchUp and
Autodesk 123D, FabLabs, lowcost 3D printers. All
targeting the "Maker generation". Hobby use of CNC machining
is a great addition, as a CNC machine can achieve so much more than
a 3D printer...
This is why we present the DeskProto hobby
license at this event. The event's theme is "3D printing at home",
combining a seminar and an exhibition. Location Eindhoven (the
Netherlands), on Oct 25, 2011.

New jewelry video on DeskProto website
This instruction video shows how DeskProto can be used with the Roland
JWX-30 wax-milling machine, to easily create jewelry wax models. In
DeskProto a special JWX-30 wizard is present that fine-tunes the
toolpaths for this machine. So you can start cutting
immediately. You will soon find DeskProto to be much faster than the
software that came with the machine.
View this new video, and learn about easy wax machining >>
