How to Mill using Othermill and Fusion 360 @adskFusion360 @othermachine
New Tutorial Series!
Since getting the Othermill back in early March of 2016, I’ve been learning a lot about the CAM tools in Autodesk Fusion 360. About each week, we’ve been making small CNC projects and started a new playlist on YouTube dubbed “Milling Monday“.
I’d like to start sharing what I’ve learned, so I’m going to start recording new screencast tutorials. There’s still tons to learn but, I hope these tutorials will help anyone struggling to learn how to setup CAM tools in Fusion 360. These videos will reside in the Layer by Layer playlist on YouTube.
In this first installment, I wanted to mill out a complimentary piece to go with my 3D printed iPhone case. Milled out of acrylic, the Pokéball logo fits nicely in the cutout and looks inlayed while the colors give a nice contrast. The glossy shine of the acrylic really adds a high quality look to the project.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
