Otherplan 0.31 is ready! This release improves Otherplan’s EAGLE .brd file support, has faster toolpath generation for PCB files, and includes a handful of usability improvements. Download the update now and read on for the details.
Yes, that’s right: it’s time for an Otherplan release!
Freshly out of beta, Otherplan 0.30 brings cursor-aware preview rotation, a number of performance optimizations, and a firmware update for the Othermill Pro. Read on for details or download now:
It’s been an exciting few months for the Otherplan Public Beta. Since its initial release last fall, we’ve released eight updates — each fixing bugs, adding major functionality, and making the app more reliable.
Today, we’re excited to announce two things: Otherplan Public Beta is coming out of beta, and we now recommend all users to switch away from our Mac-only app, if possible. Read on for the details.
Recently we've gotten some inquiries asking what people are making with their Othermills. Projects range from introductory to advanced, and I thought I would collect some of the examples from the past two months in one place. It is impressive to see the volume of work being done out there. If you have a project or technique you'd like to share, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Otherplan Public Beta 0.29 is out! In this release, we’ve improved bridged trace warnings, added new collision warnings, updated the Othermill’s firmware, and fixed a handful of bugs. Download it now or read on for the details.
Inches, millimeters, mils — what’s the difference? One of our customers asked for advice on which units to use when designing for the Othermill, so we put together this handy guide to units.
We’re excited to share today’s release of Otherplan Public Beta 0.28. In this release, we’ve added a new feature that helps you choose tools for PCBs, support for the new Othermill Pro, a firmware updater, and much more. Download it now or read on for the details.
Today there is a new machine on the scene: Othermill Pro. Higher spindle speed, faster rapids, and stiffer construction for those who need to push the limits and prototype PCBs with 6 mil trace and space precision. We built this machine primarily based upon observations and feedback from our community and couldn't be more proud of the results from this joint effort.

New media designer and ITP master’s student Dhruv Damle recently wrote in to share a beautiful project he made using one of the Othermills at ITP’s Soft Lab: his oak and aluminum abstract map of Manhattan.
What if I told you that you could mill precise PCBs in a fraction of the time, increase trace precision, and essentially eliminate the experience of breaking bits? Starting with version 0.27, the Otherplan Public Beta makes this possible with a new feature: engraving bit isolation milling.
