Other Machine Co. is a Berkeley-based manufacturer of high-precision desktop CNC (computer numerical control) milling machines, used primarily for prototyping electronics and aluminum mechanical parts. OMC began as a government-funded project to design the tools for “Shop Class for the 21st century” and focused much of their effort on simplifying the software workflow to improve accessibility. As OMC entered their fourth year of operation in 2016, they launched their highest-performance model yet: the Othermill Pro. The Othermill Pro is portable, compact, quiet, and can mill PCBs with the same precision as a circuit board manufacturer, right on your desktop. This machine allows you to beat the board house on time and cost without sacrificing on precision. There’s no training required and their software, Otherplan, imports familiar design file formats like Gerbers, .brd, and G-code. The Othermill Pro is the best solution for people who want to iterate quickly on designs when tolerance matters. Contact me for a quote or file review to see if you can improve your time to market and reduce cost with the Othermill Pro! Sold within the US only.
Beat the board house on time and cost without sacrificing on trace and space.
Familiar File Formats
Import .brd and Gerber files directly into our software, choose a milling tool, and mill your board.
The Othermill Pro is your in-house board house, reliably producing 6 mil trace and space for double-sided boards.

The Othermill CNC Parts Workflow
Features like automatic calibration and pre-loaded tools make it easy to get started.
Building hardware is hard enough without having to wrangle with software. The Othermill Pro runs with Otherplan, a new approach to machine control that simplifies setup and easily imports G-code, Gerbers, and EAGLE files.
Otherplan runs on Windows 7+ and Mac OS X 10.8+ and supports files from many popular software tools.
