What if you could easily add custom-designed circuits to DIY projects like 3D-printed stuff? Here’s a small mill that can churn them out with precision and power.

Othermill is a Kickstarter project that has quickly exceeded its fundraising goal. It’s designed to be a portable, desktop three-axis mill that can produce printed circuit boards, jewelry, molds, and other objects.

Conceived by the wizards at San Francisco-based R&D shop Otherfab/Otherlab, known for its crazy inflatable robots, Othermill works with CAD software to cut material in three dimensions. Unlike 3D printing, it cuts material away instead of adding it.

The machine is a 10-inch cube and weighs 15 pounds. It has a brushless DC motor and high-speed spindle that operates with any milling tool with a 1/8-inch-diameter shank. The cutting bed area is about 4x5x2 inches.
