    Offers all Expert options plus four-axi

    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 fourth axis
    • Indexed Rotation axis machining: the fourth axis is used to machine the part from several sides

    DeskProto Multi-Axis applications

    The DeskProto Multi-Axis edition is meant for users needing more than three axes. Like model makersmaking 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.Some examples of the extra options offered by this edition:

    venus sculpture, 4-axis
    Rotation axis machining: the model rotates during machining (Continuous rotation). The rotation axis (this device is also called fourth axis, or A-axis) looks like a barbecue spit.
    silver jewelry
    A rotation axis can also be used for “indexed machining“: machine two or more sides, for each side using plain XYZ machining. In-between the sides the A-axis rotates the part. This is offered by DeskProto’s wizard ‘Two or more sides’.
    complicated wax ring model
    For rings (jewelry wax models) in many cases a combination of the above is used:Autoflip plus Rotary.


    Extra functionality in DeskProto Multi-Axis

    The Multi-Axis edition includes all functions that are available in the Expert Edition.In addition you can create toolpath for 4-axis machinesSo all Strategies shown on the Expert page are available, both for three-axis jobs and for indexed machining. The illustrations below shows the extra Strategies for continuous rotation.

    Available Rotation Strategies in DeskProto Multi-Axis:
    parallel paths
    parallel rotary paths
    block toolpaths
    Rotation, parallel to X   ,   Rotation, parallel to A   ,   Rotation, block

    Indexed machining can be done both on a 4-axis machine (A-axis)Extra wizards are available, for continous rotation (‘Rotary machining’) and for indexed machining (‘Two or more sided, automatic rotation’).Custom wizards for jewelry application (123WaxRing, JWX-30 wax ring).
