By using its 3-axis toolhead, the machine can mill PCB Boards and carve 3D shapes. The primary characteristic of the device is its capability to be incorporated in an office setup. The Othermill Pro is sufficiently little to fit on a worktable, calm enough to feature in a public workplace and can speed up production processes by creating in-house rather than outsourcing.

Coupled with hardware systems, the Berkeley firm also has developed its own Otherplan software for the CNC machines. Bre Pettis declares he is “thrilled” to invest in Other Machine as,

The Othermill Pro is an fabulous milling machine that’s so exact that electrical engineers has the ability to mill PCB Boards with 6 mil traces and build PCB Boards faster than a PCB Board service. I’m delighted to return in the arena assisting leaders.
