The OtherMill

The OtherMill is a is a desktop 3 axis (X, Y, Z) CNC machine. By using a software called OtherPlan, it can extend SVG 2D files into 3D shape. The OtherMill is vert portable, and it can handle many kinds of materials. This week, we were using aluminum to cutout and engrave some shapes. 1. Attaching End Mill

I accidentally brought 1/16 flat mill, which works more slowly but does a very fine job.

2. Homing and Finding Origin(x, y, z)

3. Attaching Material

4. Setting Material Size and Type

5. set up tools

6. import svg.file

7. start cutting

I think it will be good if the Otherplan interface can show the rest of working time. For now, users can only see the speed and other numbers. Although it has a time bar, but it will be even better if it has the precise time.
