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.
Machine a relief model of your USA hometown
The latest gallery project shows how you can use DeskProto to create a detailed
relief model of any area in the USA ! Digital
Elevation Data is available via the USDA Geospatial Data
Gateway, completely free of charge. These elevation data
bitmaps can be imported in a DeskProto bitmap operation to create
toolpaths. Read how to do this on Gallery page
USA relief models >> which shows a detailed scale
model of San Francisco and the Golden Gate.
More details and a video are planned - follow this via
DeskProto now also in French and in Italian !
Earlier this month we have released French and Italian
versions of the DeskProto software. DeskProto now is available in
six languages: English, Dutch, French, German,
Italian and Spanish.
Trial versions are available at
and www.deskproto.it >>
Only the program has been translated, and for French the Tutorial: the other
manuals and the help file still are in English.
For current users (DP V6) the translated versions are free updates.
DeskProto V6 runs OK in Windows 8
Last month Microsoft released Windows 8, and of course we have tested DeskProto
on this new version of Windows. This proved to work fine, just as
with the Win8 pre-release :-)
See the screenshot on the
DeskProto forum >>,
showing the tile for DeskProto V6 in
the new tiled Win 8 user interface.
Older DeskProto versions will
start as well, however may come with graphics issues, and may give
problems when working with the libraries.
