DeskProto Prices

Price information for the DeskProto CAM software

On this page: All prices are in Euros.
The webshop's shopping cart will also show the price in US Dollars, at today's exchange rate. For exchange rates of other currencies see the XE Currency site.

All prices are excl VAT (Value Added Tax = sales tax).
VAT applies only to clients within the European Union, and is different per country.
The webshop's shopping cart will inform you about the VAT tax. European business clients can check "I am eligible for tax exemption" and enter their VAT number.

These prices are including all options, and free email support (except for the hobby license). The license that you will receive is 'perpetual': we do not ask any annual maintenance fee.

DeskProto orders need to be processed manually, to check if the license type applies. This means that after ordering it will take one or even a few days before your license is emailed to you. Our apologies for this small delay.

As the software can be downloaded, shipment cost do not apply - except for the optional box with printed manual and backup CD.

1. Commercial licenses.

DeskProto is created with the idea to make 3D CNC machining possible for any 3D CAD-user, not only for the large companies with their large budgets. To make this possible prices start at a very low level.
You can order from one of our Resellers, or place a direct order in our Webshop.

A Hobby license is a full-featured license: only the price is lower than for a commercial license. Even much lower: the hobby discount on DP Full is 75%. A few restrictions do apply though:
- A hobby license may be bought only by a private person, not by a company
  (also not by an employee or owner acting as a private person but in fact buying for the company).
- A hobby license may not be used for any commercial application.
- For hobby licenses the free support by telephone and email does not apply: use the Forum instead.
- A hobby license may be sold or transferred ONLY to a hobby user.

An Educational license also is a full-featured license: only the price is lower than for a commercial license. Much lower: educational discount on DP Full is 75%. Educational licenses are available only to students, teachers and schools. A proof is required, like a dated student ID card.
- An educational license may not be used for any commercial application.
- An educational license may be sold or transferred ONLY to an educational user.

In addition to (single) Educational licenses, for Schools we also offer Lab licenses and Class-packs:
Lab license : EUR 1,295.00
Using a Lab license the school may install the DeskProto Multi-Axis edition on any number of PCs in the school's network, and run it max 25 PCs simultaneously.
Class-pack : EUR 395.00
A Class-pack is a bundle of 25 DeskProto Entry Edition licenses, to be installed within one classroom. To be used by students that only need the Entry Edition's functionality.
A lowcost school license is possible by just ordering one educational license, for the teacher's PC, and using the free edition for the students. Each student then can save his Project file and send that to the teacher to create an NC toolpath file without the Trial cross. So you can have your complete classroom equipped with the DeskProto Entry edition for EUR 145.00 only, and with the DeskProto Multi-Axis edition for EUR 248.00 only!
