CNC machine is making PCB

Quick video about etching and drilling PCB (Printed Circuit Board) with CNC machine.
Board made in CadSoft Eagle + gcode_02.ulp script.
Machine is wood/polyethylen construction whitch i designed and made at home some time ago.
Milling motor is Kress FME800 at ~13k RPM’s. Etching bit is 30′ 0,2mm (from ebay). Drills comes from a local market.
More information about machine (in polish) is on my blogger site

Co-founder of Makerbot, Bre Pettis purchases milling machine company Other Machine

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

American firm, Other Machine operates from Berkeley and is the developer of the Othermill Pro desktop milling system. Bre Pettis at this time works as CEO and founder of Bre & Co, set up in the year 2016, the firm creates bespoke 3D printed presents and heirlooms.

Othermill Pro

Other Machine released its Othermill product line on Kickstarter with the original machine raising over $311,000 back in 2013. The newest system, the Othermill Pro, now retails for $3,199.

Making use of its 3-axis toolhead, the machine has the ability to mill Printed Circuit Boards and carve 3D shapes. The main characteristic of the product is its ability to be incorporated in an office setup. The Othermill Pro is sufficiently small enough to fit on a desktop, calm enough to feature in a community working environment and can quicken up production processes by creating in-house instead of contracting out.

Coupled with hardware equipment, the Berkeley company also has designed its very own Otherplan software for the CNC machines. Bre Pettis declares he is “thrilled” to purchase Other Machine as,

The Othermill Pro is definitely an mind-blowing milling machine which is so exact that electrical engineers has the ability to mill Printed Circuit Boards with 6 mil traces and develop Printed Circuit Boards quicker than a Printed Circuit Board service. I’m ecstatic to return in the arena boosting leaders.

Printed Circuit Boards and electronic products

CEO of Other Machine, Dr. Danielle Applestone makes clear, “I anticipate building on our commitment of accessible prototyping machines for expert engineers and empowering a generation of students using the Othermill Pro to learn and make their concepts a real possibility.”

Applestone also pointed out she will keep running in her role as CEO and is “delighted to get Bre’s support.”
