Rapid Prototyping from Fusion 360 to Othermill #ManufacturingMonday with @Mindtribe @adskFusion360 @othermachine

While from last year, we’re always inspired by maker’s stories about thinking through their process, or questioning the capabilities of a piece of technology at their fingertips, as it inspires our own projects and approach (see here and here). A simple example combining cloud-based software and a physical piece of hardware on your workshop bench is this blog about rapid prototyping a creamsicle ornament using Fusion 360 and an Othermill:

At Mindtribe, we’re always exploring new economical ways to rapidly prototype our designs. When our electrical engineering team purchased an Othermill for routing out simple 2-layer PCBs, our mechanical engineers immediately started thinking about how to use the new tool for fabrication of 3D parts. Unfortunately, there is no straightforward and well-documented process for exporting g-code for the Othermill directly from Solidworks.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
