Utrecht (the Netherlands), March 31, 2008 -- Delft Spline Systems announces an addition to its DeskProto CAM software: the 123WaxRing system. This new system (patent pending) is meant for jewelers, and makes creating jewelry wax models easier than ever before. 123WaxRing will be presented at the Baselword jewelry show, held in Basel (Switzerland) from April 3 to April 10. You can find it a the stand of DeskProto reseller Horbach: Hall 3.U, Stand M10.
The 123WaxRing system makes CNC machining your wax model easier than 3D printing it: using pre-shaped wax disks, a special fixture and smart software, milling has become a push-the-button process. No need to prepare a wax block, change tools, reconfigure a fixture or reset the zero point: three times fasten one single screw is all you need to do.
The toolpaths are prepared by the 123WaxRing wizard, which runs in the DeskProto software. Required input is an STL file, from any jewelry design program. The system will be shown using a Roland JWX-10 wax milling machine, it can be used on any 4 axis CNC milling machine though.
"Jewelers have been asking us to combine DeskProto with a fixture." says Lex Lennings, product manager for DeskProto and 123WaxRing. "We are very proud of this new solution which is more than just another fixture: it makes creating jewelry wax models significantly easier than with other solutions."
123WaxRing is aimed at jewelers, to allow in-house manufacturing of wax models. Not only ring models are possible: it is also easy to create wax models of charms, pendants and alike designs.
