From CircuitMaker Software to Same-Day Othermill Prototype | #ManufacturingMonday with @CircuitMaker @othermachine
CircuitMaker’s Ben Jordan recently sat down with an Othermill and went from software to prototype PCB in a day. It’s always a pleasure to see makers iterating and prototyping with what is essentially a maker-made product! Read his blog here, which includes a potential tip for gerber rounding errors that could apply to your designs too.
I have to say, everything went very smoothly and I am really, really impressed with the quality of this desktop mill, and the Otherplan control software that goes with it. They’ve made is simple and elegant and it wasn’t difficult to add my own gerbers for a prototype.
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.
