If you haven’t taken a minute (well, actually 1:36) to watch our newest product video, check it out now! It beautifully illustrates the possibilities of what you can make on the Othermill by showing off a multi-material case created for Other Machine Co.’s popular binary timepiece, the Nerd Watch.
!One of the wonderful things about having an Othermill is the ability to make thoughtful, custom presents to celebrate notable occasions. It’s also useful for those of us who may or may not be great at planning ahead and need a thoughtful, custom gift in time for brunch.

Two weeks ago, a few of us ladies here at OMC, along with some of our friends over at Otherlab, participated in the Expanding Your Horizons conference hosted at UC Berkeley to help educate young girls about STEM careers. The conference gathered about 500 girls between the ages of 11 and 14 to learn about STEM fields from female students and professionals in various tech industries.
Though the Othermill is wonderful for a wide range of 2.5 and 3D applications, it still remains true to its roots as a very fine method to build and protoype circuit boards. We have a few trips and tricks we’ve discovered in milling boards that make the board-cutting process on the Othermill even more pleasant.
Home tinkerer, Github user, and Othermill owner Jetty recently contacted us about a project he made on his shiny new Othermill, which involves making ice fishing slightly nicer for the fish as well as the humans. We’re excited about this project because it employs both a 3D printer and the Othermill for an elegant finished product.
Here at OMC, it’s really lovely having a mill or two lying around, since it means we never need to scramble for a last-minute gift for a friend or loved one. As Valentine’s day is coming up, we thought some nice chocolates would be just the thing.
Last year was a whirlwind for us here at OMC. We wrapped up our Kickstarter project, redesigned the Othermill for public release, built out our assembly line, and started shipping our V2 machines.
When we’re out on the road talking about milling machines, inevitably the comparison to 3D printers comes up. If you’ve got a 3D printer, why would you need a mill?
Last week was Autodesk University, Autodesk’s annual software conference for 9,000 engineers, designers, architects, and artists. It’s an amazing event, focused on making of all kinds, but this year there was something new: a student hack!
