Co-founder of Makerbot, Bre Pettis purchases milling machine company Other Machine
Former CEO and co-founder of 3D printing company Makerbot, Bre Pettis has purchased a non 3D printing related firm – the CNC milling system enterprise Other Machine.
Californian enterprise, Other Machine operates from Berkeley and is the creator of the Othermill Pro desktop milling system. Bre Pettis at the moment serves as CEO and founder of Bre & Co, established in the year 2016, the enterprise creates unique 3D printed presents and heirlooms.
Other Machine unveiled its Othermill products on Kickstarter with the original machine getting above $311,000 back in 2013. The most up-to-date system, the Othermill Pro, at this point retails for $3,199.
By using its 3-axis toolhead, the machine has the capability to mill Printed Circuit Boards and carve 3D shapes. The most important selling point of the system is its ability to be incorporated in an office setup. The Othermill Pro is sufficiently small to fit on a desk, quiet enough to feature in a public working place and can facilitate production processes by creating in-house other than outsourcing.
In addition to hardware machinery, the Berkeley company also has created its own Otherplan software for the CNC machines. Bre Pettis declares he is “thrilled” to purchase Other Machine as,
The Othermill Pro is surely an unbelievable milling machine that is so precise that electrical engineers can easily mill Printed Circuit Boards with 6 mil traces and create Printed Circuit Boards faster than a Printed Circuit Board service. I’m ecstatic to return in the arena supporting forerunners.
Printed Circuit Boards and electronic devices
CEO of Other Machine, Dr. Danielle Applestone explains, “I anticipate building on our commitment of accessible prototyping machines for specialist engineers and empowering a generation of students using the Othermill Pro to learn and make their thoughts a reality.”
Applestone likewise suggested she is going to proceed in her position as CEO and is “thrilled to have Bre’s assistance.”
