Review - MicroLathe Version 1.5.1 (1992)

µLathe (MicroLathe) is an easy to use modeling tool that allows you to create three dimensional lathe objects.
Although it's a little dated (1992, Windows 3.1 technology) a fellow by the name of Daniel S. Baker wrote a nice little lathe program that will still run on all modern versions of Windows ... and then vanished.  No one has been able to track him down to see if he plans to offer any enhancements to his program, or pay him the $15 shareware fee (I've really tried!).

Still, if you can find it (or get a copy from me) µLathe (MicroLathe) is an easy to use shareware modeling tool that allows you to create three dimensional lathe objects.

Version 1.5.1 is the latest release I have been able to find, and contains the following "modern enhancements":  Gouraud Shading; Copy Command; DIB support; TGA support; Fast Redraw; Windows 3.1 support; casino online Nederlandse Gokken and Online Help.

It is a cute little application that can generate some fairly nice 3D images.  Don't look for CAD power or finesse in this one ... but the price is right (essentially free), and with copy and paste, you can move 2D images of your creations to other graphics programs for further refinement.

Happy Turning!
