Multi-Axis Edition
 
Somthing to note:  true 4 and 5 axis CAM is not the same as wrapping a Gcode on a cylinder which is flat  and  wrapped on the surface.With true 4 axis 5 you can machine full round 3d models and more which can not be achieved with the simple Gcode wrapping functions you see in other 3d CAM software
This amazing CAM software does all three normal axis as well as the true 4th and 5th axis CAM at a price unheard of for the hobbyist and even professional.
 
DeskProto Multi-Axis: the Flagship edition, for 4-axis milling and 5-axis milling.
Multi-Axis edition offers all Expert options plus four-axis and five-axis machining.
 

We send your information in to have a license file generated for you. We will email that to you as soon as we’ve received it, which usually takes 24 to 48 hours or less. Meanwhile, you can use the program in Demo mode while you wait for your license file. 

 
In the Multi-Axis edition all DeskProto options are available. The result is a CAM program that allows you to produce even the most complicated models.
 The extra features that DeskProto Multi-Axis offers:
 Continuous Rotation axis machining: during machining the part is rotated by the machine's fourth axis.
 Indexed Rotation axis machining: the fourth axis is used to machine the part from several sides.
 Five-axis machining (indexed): the model can be machined from almost all sides.

PLEASE NOTE: the Hobby Version is the same as the Commercial version except it can not be used in a commercial environment.

 

 

DeskProto Multi-Axis applications
 
The DeskProto Multi-Axis edition is meant for users needing more than three axes. Like modelmakers making complex models, jewelers needing a wax model, artists for a sculpture that needs to be machined from all sides, etc.
 DeskProto can be combined with any 3D CAD program, and with any CNC milling machine.
 
Functionality in the DeskProto Multi-Axis Edition
 
The Multi-Axis edition offer ALL options that are available in the Expert Edition
 
 So all Strategies shown on the Expert page are available as well, both for three-axis jobs and for indexed machining.
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 "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).
