Where to download 2D and 3D CAD models
Links to external websites of CAD librariesWe supply these links to assist all (potential) DeskProto users in selecting their optimal system configuration. Next to that we trust that these links on CNC milling will prove to be a useful source of information for many others as well. For each listing we absolutely do not pretend any completeness: many more suppliers of valuable products do exist. So do not feel offended not to be listed: please feel free to email any updates, suggestions and/or remarks to firstname.lastname@example.org
Disclaimer: we are not responsible in case any information is invalid, missing or otherwise false.

2D and 3D modelsA possibility to quickly obtain 3D CAD geometry for DeskProto is by buying and/or downloading one. Listed are a few on-line sources of 2D vector patterns (DXF files) and 3D geometry models (STL files).
Note that many geometry models are meant for rendering purposes, meaning that for model making the resolution will be quite low. When the polygons are visible in DeskProto, they will be clearly visible in the resulting model too.
