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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
