New DpPictureFrame.stl sample geometry
Not only the software is new, the free sample files that come with
DeskProto have been updated too. A very nice sample is the
DpPictureFrame geometry: an ornamented photo frame
that has been modelled for DeskProto users and is present in
every trial download. Machine a frame in wood, to make
a special gift...
The geometry is used in Lesson 1 of the new V6
Tutorial >>, a training video will follow next year.
Great five-axis Gallery project, including video
The latest gallery project has been created using a Version 6 Beta build.
It shows the creation of a classic car model: the Austin
Healey Sprite (1960), nicknamed Frogeye. Special is
the use of Five-Axis machining, to reach areas that
otherwise could not have been machined. The page includes a cool
video to show the five-axis machine while making
this model in wood.
