Founded in 1866, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is not only one of the most well-respected art and design schools in the U.S., but it’s also known for its forward-thinking interdisciplinary curricular offerings and for pushing the envelope on what education in the arts can look like. We’ve previously covered their use of desktop manufacturing tools and are proud that Othermills are among their robust tool offerings.
Winter is almost over, and that means it's time for another Othermill Project Roundup! Throughout the season, we've collected quite a few Othermill-made creations from community members near and far, and we're excited to share them with you. Projects range from 2D engravings made using SVGs, to both simple and complex PCBs, to 2-1/2D mechanical parts in all shapes and materials (wood, polycarb, and aluminum, just to name a few).
We recently heard from one of our intrepid community members, Dave Cox, who reached out to share a guide he's written about using the Othermill and Otherplan to make mechanical prototypes using Altium. Dave is an engineer at SeeScan, a company that specializes in designing, manufacturing, and supporting diagnostic and utility-locating equipment.
