Co-founder of Makerbot, Bre Pettis acquires milling machine firm Other Machine

Former CEO and co-founder of 3D printing firm Makerbot, Bre Pettis has purchased a non 3D printing associated business – the CNC milling system firm Other Machine.

American firm, Other Machine operates from Berkeley and is the inventor of the Othermill Pro desktop milling system. Bre Pettis at the moment acts as CEO and founding father of Bre & Co, started in the year 2016, the firm creates personalised 3D printed presents and heirlooms.

Othermill Pro

Other Machine brought in its Othermill product line on Kickstarter with the original machine getting in excess of $311,000 back in 2013. The most current system, the Othermill Pro, now retails for $3,199.

With the use of its 3-axis toolhead, the machine has the potential to mill PCBs and carve 3D shapes. The main characteristic of the product is its capability to be incorporated in an office setup. The Othermill Pro is sufficiently small to fit on a workdesk, calm enough to feature in a communal working environment and can accelerate production processes by creating in-house as opposed to contracting out.

Besides hardware machinery, the Berkeley firm has also developed its very own Otherplan software for the CNC machines. Bre Pettis states he is “thrilled” to invest in Other Machine as,

The Othermill Pro is an incredible milling machine which is so accurate that electrical engineers can mill PCBs with 6 mil traces and create PCBs quicker than a PCB service. I’m energized to return in the arena boosting innovators.

PCBs and electronics

CEO of Other Machine, Dr. Danielle Applestone describes, “I stay up for building on our commitment of accessible prototyping machines for professional engineers and empowering a generation of students who use the Othermill Pro to learn and make their concepts an actuality.”

Applestone furthermore explained she is going to continue in her position as CEO and is “excited to get Bre’s assistance.”
