DeskProto CAM Software

deskproto-cam

DeskProto is an NC programming system (CAM)

for automatically generating 3D CNC codes for CNC machines.

Available in 3 versions: Entry, Expert & Multiaxis.

from 172,55 €

(incl. 19% VAT)

System requirements

To run Deskproto you need a PC with the following requirements:

  • Windows operating system
  • CPU: Minimum 1GHz (recommended 2Ghz)
  • RAM: Minimum 512 MB
  • Grafic: Standard graphic card
  • Connections: LPT (printer port) and / or USB
  • Hard disk with enough free memory
  • keyboard
  • mouse
  • monitor

At an exceptionally low price, the system offers the simple, fast and safe production of 3D CNC code. Main areas of application are 3D milling and rapid prototyping with CNC milling machines.

was designed to create CNC programs quickly and easily using 3D geometry.

Particular care was taken to ensure that even CNC beginners quickly achieve decent and high-quality results with the program.

The software is designed almost exclusively for the 3D area. Rapid-Prototyping on CNC machines speeds up the development and design process, as it quickly gives a “tangible” result.

DeskProto needs only a 3D model to create the CNC programs. Programs are generated for 3-axis machines, optionally also with rotary axis (see picture), ie on 4-axis CNC machines. Standard projects can be saved within the processing and used so quickly for new projects.

DeskProto is very inexpensive. An easy handling, a short learning process and a small price distinguish this software especially.

DeskProto Version overview

DeskProto Entry

In the ENTRY Edition, the CAM program provides the most important parameters for creating the G-code for 3D models and simple 2D milling. Also, the 3D milling of a bitmap file is supported.

DeskProto Expert

The EXPERT Edition has the complete DeskProto functionality for 3D CAM programming for CNC machines with three simultaneous axes.

DeskProto Multi-Axis

In addition to three and four-axis (4-channel or 5-channel) machines, the MULTI-AXIS Edition also supports 5-axis CNC machines with a pivotable rotary axis for 3D CAM programming.

And that’s how easy it is (video):

It’s so easy to work with our machines! Design your drawing or CAD data, e.g. in ConstruCAM-3D or Corel Draw and convert them into a G-code. The CNC machine is controlled by the CNC program Win-PC NC.
