Mill-a-Week

weekly experiments with othermachine Othermill by @todbot & @carlynorama

Projects

MyFirstOtherMillPendant - 22 May 2015

  • Task: Use Illustrator to make a non-circuit design
  • Notes:
    • Hard to align multiple SVGs

LED-OtherCat - 29 May 2015

  • Task: Make simple non-rectangular circuit in Eagle using 1/16" endmill
  • Notes:
    • Can't do most through-hole with 1/16" --> Do extra hole pass at 1/32"

HandCodedGerberPart01 - 5 Jun 2015

NeoJoints - 5 Jun 2015

  • UPDATE: These have their own repo now: https://github.com/todbot/NeoJoints
  • Task: Make "joints" for NeoPixel/WS2812 LED strip to make it easier to join pieces together
  • Notes:
    • Programmatically generating these for different angles, LED spacing, etc. would be good.

MillBug - 12 Jun 2015

  • Task: Make an ATtiny85-based circuit using something other than LEDs
  • Notes:
    • Soldering SMD on non-soldermask boards is a recipe for disaster if you have spazzy hands.
    • So, increase polygon "isolate" value for ground pour to give you bigger spacing to non-milled copper.

OtherBlink - 3 Jul 2015 (originally Aug 2014)

  • Task: See if Othermill can do SOIC & PLCC packages for ATtiny85 & WS2812, and make battery-powered flashing LED pendant with capsense touch sensor
  • Notes:
    • capsense on battery-powered projects is challenging

PlywoodPendant - 24 Jul 2015

  • Task: See if we can hit the independant plys in high-grade plywood
  • Notes:

See if Othermill can do SOIC & PLCC packages for ATtiny85 & WS2812, and make battery-powered flashing LED pendant with capsense touch sensor

  • Notes:
    • Lots of "chipout" around engraved areas. Would blue tape help?
    • We can make it thin enough for LEDs!
