DeskProto is meant for any company that needs in-house facilities for Rapid prototyping. RP means converting a 3D CAD model of a design into a physical model (prototype). This can be achieved either by stacking many thin layers (Additive RP) or by removing chips from a block (Subtractive RP). Stereolithography machines and other layer oriented systems are far too expensive, however a small NC milling machine combined with DeskProto is affordable: offering Desktop prototyping.
Main application areas are concept modeling (using physical models during the concept stage of the design process) and the creation of styling block models for presentations purposes. In some cases even manufacturing is possible: for instance wax models for jewelry (investment casting). The advantages of in-house RP are clear: you no longer have to wait a number of days, your prototype is ready within hours! The design process will clearly be accelerated.
In fact, DeskProto is a 3D CAM program that is aimed at RP. Main difference with other 3D CAM software is that DeskProto is aimed at designers instead of at CAM specialists. Do note that two versions of DeskProto are available: Full and Lite, the latter offering a subset of DeskProto's functionality.
