Adafruit’s Ecosystem of Innovation @ Other Machine Co..

Roughly three months ago, Fried added an Othermill to Adafruit’s workshop and says, “Our testing procedure is much faster now. We can design and revise our circuit boards in-house within hours instead of weeks.” Adafruit backed Othermill’s Kickstarter campaign and promoted it to their community the very day it launched. Fried asserts, “This is the first high-precision PCB mill we’ve seen, with great software too!” She adds, “I can now make precision circuits and prototypes for manufacture without getting a vat of chemicals. It’s also allowed many Adafruit staffers to learn PCB design and manufacture because of the fast turnaround times and low barrier to entry.”

  1. With my Othermill arriving imminently, I’d love to hear more about your experience milling Pyralux, even if its still very preliminary. I’m very excited to simply have the mill for regular old PCBs and other prototyping work, but I have a few projects in mind where milling flex pcb material could be really handy, and difficult to do otherwise. Would be great to hear what’s worked and what hasn’t work, mill settings, etc.
