Product description

DeskProto Expert


The DeskProto software can be downloaded, so no shipment is needed.


The Deskproto Expert offers a wealth of options for 3-axis CNC machining.

In the Expert edition all DeskProto options are available except for the rotation axes. The result is a CAM program that allows you to produce even the most complicated models.
A few of the features that the Expert Edition offers you:

  • Two different user-interfaces: the wizards to get you started, and the dialogs to exploit all options

  • Extremely fast calculations, also for complex geometries

  • Large STL files are possible: 500 MB is no problem, for the 64 bits version even several GB

  • 3D machining, simple 2D machining and bitmap machining all in one program

  • The ability to freely add cutters, machines and postprocessors

  • A very intuitive user-interface.


DeskProto Expert applications

The DeskProto Expert Edition is meant for professional users who's profession is not CNC machining. Like designers and modelmakers needing a prototype, artists for a sculpture, medics for a brace, etc.

DeskProto can be combined with any 3D CAD program, and with any CNC milling machine.
Using DeskProto you can create a model in many ways:


insole picture
Simply machine your part from one side.For instance this insole, a relief model, a thermoforming mold.



hand tool picture
Machine two separate halves of a model, each from one side, later to be glued together. Like the right and left half of this hand-tool.



fish sculpture picture
Machine the model from two sides, either using a rotation axis for the 180 degree flip or doing a manual flip. For either case DeskProto provides a wizard to assist.

2D toolpaths can be combined with 3D machining, be projected on a 3D geometry, and also wrapped around an object when rotation axis machining.



toolpaths for Radetzky bitmap
When Bitmap machining DeskProto will convert each Z-value in the bitmap to a Z-height in the relief. This means that you can machine any photo! The relief can also be projected on or wrapped around a 3D geometry.


Functionality in DeskProto Expert

The following settings are available in the DeskProto Expert Edition:

  • Roughing and Finishing operations, the roughing options: skin thickness and layer height
  • Limit the area to be machined using a (freeform) segment
  • Dynamic feedrate control: automatically reduce for high chip-loads. Also called the "Bit Saver feature"
  • Many machining strategies available (see below)
  • Inverse milling: machine a cavity that fits the geometry in the STL file
  • Add support blocks, needed when machining from several sides or with a rotation axis
  • Meander/climb/conventional, Ambient skipping, Collet collision check, ...
  • Simple 2D machining, and you can also project the 2D contour on the 3D geometry
  • Bitmap machining (grey-value to Z-Height), also project the bitmap relief on the 3D geometry
  • Choose a user-interface: wizard or dialog-based, or create a project with the wizard and then fine-tune using the dialogs.
  • Freely add machine-definitions
  • Configure your own postprocessor (if needed).
