Co-founder of Makerbot, Bre Pettis acquires milling machine firm Other Machine
Ex-CEO and co-founder of 3D printing business Makerbot, Bre Pettis has bought a non 3D printing related firm – the CNC milling equipment corporation Other Machine.
American corporation, Other Machine operates from Berkeley and is the developer of the Othermill Pro desktop milling equipment. Bre Pettis at this point functions as CEO and founder of Bre & Co, founded in the year 2016, the corporation creates customised 3D printed gifts and heirlooms.

Making use of its 3-axis toolhead, the machine has the potential to mill PCBs and carve 3D shapes. The principle selling feature of the system is its capability to be incorporated in an office setup. The Othermill Pro is sufficiently small enough to fit on a worktable, calm enough to feature in a social workplace and can hasten up production processes by creating in-house instead of contracting out.
Along with hardware machines, the Berkeley firm furthermore has made its very own Otherplan software for the CNC machines. Bre Pettis says he is “thrilled” to buy Other Machine as,
The Othermill Pro is definitely an extraordinary milling machine that’s so accurate that electrical engineers can easily mill PCBs with 6 mil traces and build PCBs faster than a PCB service. I’m enthusiastic to return in the arena boosting leaders.
