Offers all Expert options plus four-axis.
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:
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 machines
So 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:
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).
