Co-founder of Makerbot, Bre Pettis acquires milling machine firm Other Machine
Former CEO and co-founder of 3D printing company Makerbot, Bre Pettis has purchased a non 3D printing related business – the CNC milling equipment enterprise Other Machine.
Californian enterprise, Other Machine operates from Berkeley and is the producer of the Othermill Pro desktop milling equipment. Bre Pettis now works as CEO and founding father of Bre & Co, established in 2016, the enterprise creates tailored 3D printed presents and heirlooms.
Other Machine marketed its Othermill product line on Kickstarter with the original machine raising above $311,000 back in 2013. The most up-to-date equipment, the Othermill Pro, at the moment is sold for $3,199.
Employing its 3-axis toolhead, the machine has the potential to mill Printed Wiring Boards and carve 3D shapes. The most important characteristic of the system is its capability to be incorporated in an office setup. The Othermill Pro is small enough to fit on a worktable, silent enough to feature in a public workplace and can accelerate production processes by creating in-house in lieu of outsourcing.
Along with hardware devices, the Berkeley firm in addition has produced its very own Otherplan software for the CNC machines. Bre Pettis claims he is “thrilled” to acquire Other Machine as,
The Othermill Pro is definitely an remarkable milling machine which is so accurate that electrical engineers has the capability to mill Printed Wiring Boards with 6 mil traces and build Printed Wiring Boards more rapidly than a Printed Wiring Board service. I’m happy to be back in the arena assisting innovators.
Printed Wiring Boards and electronic products
CEO of Other Machine, Dr. Danielle Applestone explains, “I anticipate building on our commitment of accessible prototyping machines for professional engineers and empowering countless of students who utilize the Othermill Pro to learn and make their thoughts come true.”
Applestone in addition stated she is going to continue on in her position as CEO and is “thrilled to get Bre’s assistance.”
