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.
