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.
