IN STOCK – Othermill – Compact Precision CNC + PCB Milling Machine


The Othermill is a portable, precise milling machine that allows you to create 2D and 3D objects out of durable materials, such as wood, metal, and plastic, using digital designs. It's one of Lady Ada's favorite tools, and we use one at the Adafruit factory every single day to prototype new designs, create testers, and experiment with fun new materials

No assembly required! The Othermill includes the tools and materials you need to get started cutting 3D objects right away.

Othermill's free software, Otherplan, designed for MAC OS X, imports your designs in familiar formats — Vector graphics (.svg), Eagle (.brd), Gerber, and G-code. You can even download and cut millions of free vector graphic designs that are online. Create finished products in minutes!

One of the great things about milling is that you can get all different styles of cuts by using different tools. Here is a list of some of Other Machine's favorites, but you can use any tool with a 1/8" shaft.
